"When asked why a student should choose Agnes Scott College, Elizabeth Kiss, its president, used to wax long about the value of the liberal arts, the college’s great faculty members, its beautiful campus, and so on. Now she simply says that it’s a college for women who aim to become leaders in a world of global problems.” – The Chronicle of Higher Education, Jan. 6, 2016
