13. There’s no crying in academia. Well, except when you hug your favorite mascot goodbye after serving nine years as chancellor. In addition to burnishing UW–Madison’s academic reputation and growing the institution’s research funding, Chancellor Rebecca Blank cheered alongside @uwbuckybadger at numerous Badger sporting events, including two @badgermbb Final Fours, two @badgerwhockey championships, a @badgervb championship and a @badgerfootball Rose Bowl. They shared a hug at a farewell event at the @wisconsinunion Terrace in May. #UWMadison Moments in Time: 14/49.

5. If it fits, it sits. The bones of a puma sit neatly in the gurney of a computed tomography scanner at the Wisconsin Institute for Medical Research. Researchers from the Wisconsin Geology Museum are using the scans to compare the fossilized remains of the extinct North American cheetah, thought to be six feet long and 150 pounds, to modern-day cheetahs and pumas. #UWMadison Moments in Time: 5/49.

Moments in Time 2022 — a year of views created by University Communications photographers — encapsulates the momentum behind the resiliency we earned in 2020 and 2021. The virus was still with us, but so too were the vaccines, and across #UWMadison, we discovered new ways — and returned to some cherished old ones — of living and working and learning together. Throughout the next several weeks, we’ll be sharing each Moment in Time here on Instagram.
