Expert group released a report as a result of the visit that took place in December 2016. The document presents the detailed evaluation as well as the Board's recommendations regarding faculty developement.
The Board commended the progress achieved since the last visit:

«The Board is generally happy with the performance of the Department over the last few years, and with the progress made since the last report. The Department came out of infancy and developed into an adolescent, on the track to a stable and sustainable state. While the growing pains continue, for reasons both internal and external to the Department and the University, the Board is generally optimistic about the long-term prospects.

… The Board reaffirms its assessment of the overall level of research activities at the Department as outstanding, both in volume and in quality. The Department continues to retain its leading position among university mathematics departments in the country. Publications (co-)authored by the members of the Department appear in some of the most prestigious international journals. Researchers working here continue to be in high demand at numerous conferences throughout the globe. Departmental alumni continue their education at some of the best graduate programs in the world. The worldwide reputation of the Department continues to rise.»
