Rector Christian Leumann on the 2021 annual report 

“Switzerland continues to face tough challenges as a center for academia. However: thanks to the COVID-19 measures that have become ingrained in our everyday routines, operations at the University of Bern became a little more normal again in 2021. The on-site presence of students, teachers and researchers is an essential factor for the success of the University of Bern.

We achieved a great deal as a university again in 2021 and can be proud of ourselves. As a comprehensive university with strengths in every discipline, our network and our open mindset, our potential is enormous. Entirely in keeping with our guiding principle: Knowledge creates value.”
