During her tenure, Vickers presided over the $225 million “Challenging Women” campaign to support improvements in recruitment and retention of students and to spur academic innovation without increasing the size of the college. In the 11 years Vickers served as president, Bryn Mawr saw a 40-percent increase in undergraduate applications, and the college’s endowment nearly doubled in size.
