2013-2014 Annual Report

A report on the Blavatnik School of Government's aims and achievements over the past year, published in July 2014.

The 2013-2014 academic year has been characterized by exciting growth in the School and emerging evidence of impact in our teaching, research and engagement activities.

Construction of our new building is well underway; a number of major new research projects are starting; we have been recruiting new staff and faculty to deliver our expanding programmes; and we are anticipating the arrival of new students on our MPP and DPhil programmes this autumn.

Particular achievements highlighted in the 2014 annual report are:

  • The success of our efforts to pioneer ways to identify and recruit outstanding individuals with the energy, determination and integrity to make a difference.
  • The swift uplift of our research programmes, especially as our faculty numbers grow and funding increases through grants and awards.
  • The substantial increase in support for our students through scholarships and bursaries secured both by the School and students themselves.
  • The expansion and deepening of our collaborative relationships with outstanding institutions from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
