Reporting on her work with President Truman’s Commission on Higher Education, President Blanding expressed her sense of the college’s place in higher education’s future: “I hope that Vassar College will always have something going on, that we will always be experimentally minded.  If Vassar learns how to do something better than any other college, we will be affecting all of education in the country.  I think that, perhaps, is our justification for being.”     Vassar Alumnae Magazine
