From the August 1963 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The true purpose of higher education is not to superimpose on the student a standardized veneer of knowledge, skills, and attitudes so that he ultimately can be identified as a college graduate. It is to provide a stimulating environment of thought in which the student is encouraged to find himself, to identify his individual talents, and to begin the development of such talents for the benefit of himself and of society as a whole.
