The IEC members highly estimated the work of the University in 2016, commented on the report and congratulated RUDN on the new slogan.

Hans de Wit, Director of Boston College Center for international higher education stressed that he supported RUDN new positioning.
«It is a very good slogan and I like the logo as well. It reflects very well what you are aiming at. You want to move from quantity to quality. It is not the number of student that matters but their proficiency. It is a very correct way. You have already done a lot for your international reputation».
