In May 2017, the Faculty of Vassar College voted to adopt a policy to share much of their published research with readers worldwide. In doing so, Vassar has joined with many other colleges and universities throughout the United States in an effort to create more equitable and widespread access to high quality scholarship. Faculty can use this web site to submit or waive articles, or learn more about Open Access. The complete Open Access policy is available here.
