Vanguard Small-Cap Index FundInvestment ObjectiveThe Fund seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measuresthe investment return of small-capitalization stocks.Fees and ExpensesThe following table describes the fees and expenses you may pay if you buy,hold, and sell Investor Shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such asbrokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are notreflected in the table and example below.Shareholder Fees(Fees paid directly from your investment)Sales Charge (Load) Imposed on PurchasesPurchase FeeNoneNoneSales Charge (Load) Imposed on Reinvested DividendsRedemption FeeNoneNoneAccount Service Fee Per Year(for certain fund account balances below 10,000) 20Annual Fund Operating Expenses(Expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment)Management Fees0.16%12b-1 Distribution FeeOther ExpensesTotal Annual Fund Operating ExpensesNone0.01%0.17%1

ExampleThe following example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing inthe Fund’s Investor Shares with the cost of investing in other mutual funds. Itillustrates the hypothetical expenses that you would incur over various periods ifyou were to invest 10,000 in the Fund’s shares. This example assumes that theshares provide a return of 5% each year and that total annual fund operatingexpenses remain as stated in the preceding table. You would incur thesehypothetical expenses whether or not you were to redeem your investment atthe end of the given period. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower,based on these assumptions your costs would be:1 Year 173 Years 555 Years 9610 Years 217Portfolio TurnoverThe Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sellssecurities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate mayindicate higher transaction costs and may result in more taxes when Fundshares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected inannual fund operating expenses or in the previous expense example, reduce theFund’s performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolioturnover rate was 22% of the average value of its portfolio.Principal Investment StrategiesThe Fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track theperformance of the CRSP US Small Cap Index, a broadly diversified index ofstocks of small U.S. companies. The Fund attempts to replicate the target indexby investing all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up theIndex, holding each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weightingin the Index.Principal RisksAn investment in the Fund could lose money over short or long periods of time.You should expect the Fund’s share price and total return to fluctuate within awide range. The Fund is subject to the following risks, which could affect theFund’s performance: Stock market risk, which is the chance that stock prices overall will decline.Stock markets tend to move in cycles, with periods of rising prices and periodsof falling prices. The Fund’s target index tracks a subset of the U.S. stock market,which could cause the Fund to perform differently from the overall stock market.In addition, the Fund’s target index may, at times, become focused in stocks of a2

particular market sector, which would subject the Fund to proportionately higherexposure to the risks of that sector. Investment style risk, which is the chance that returns fromsmall-capitalization stocks will trail returns from the overall stock market.Historically, small-cap stocks have been more volatile in price than the large-capstocks that dominate the overall market, and they often perform quite differently.The stock prices of small companies tend to experience greater volatilitybecause, among other things, these companies tend to be more sensitive tochanging economic conditions.An investment in the Fund is not a deposit of a bank and is not insured orguaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any othergovernment agency.3

Annual Total ReturnsThe following bar chart and table are intended to help you understand the risksof investing in the Fund. The bar chart shows how the performance of the Fund‘sInvestor Shares has varied from one calendar year to another over the periodsshown. The table shows how the average annual total returns of the Fund’sInvestor Shares compare with those of the Fund’s target index and othercomparative indexes, which have investment characteristics similar to those ofthe Fund.

Investing in Index FundsWhat Is Indexing?Indexing is an investment strategy for tracking the performance of a specifiedmarket benchmark, or “index.” An index is a group of securities whose overallperformance is used as a standard to measure the investment performance of aparticular market. There are many types of indexes. Some represent entiremarkets—such as the U.S. stock market or the U.S. bond market. Other indexescover market segments—such as small-capitalization stocks or short-termbonds. One cannot invest directly in an index.The index sponsor determines the securities to include in the index and theweighting of each security in the index. Under normal circumstances, the indexsponsor will rebalance an index on a regular schedule. An index sponsor maycarry out additional ad hoc index rebalances or delay or cancel a scheduledrebalance. Generally, the index sponsor does not provide any warranty, or acceptany liability, with respect to the quality, accuracy, or completeness of either thetarget index or its related data. Errors made by the index sponsor may occurfrom time to time and may not be identified by the index sponsor for a period oftime or at all. Vanguard does not provide any warranty or guarantee against sucherrors. Therefore, the gains, losses, or costs associated with the index sponsor’serrors will generally be borne by the index fund and its shareholders.An index fund seeks to hold all, or a representative sample, of the securities thatmake up its target index. Index funds attempt to mirror the performance of thetarget index, for better or worse. However, an index fund generally does notperform exactly like its target index. For example, index funds have operatingexpenses and transaction costs. Market indexes do not, and therefore they willusually have a slight performance advantage over funds that track them. Theability of an index fund to match its performance to that of its target index canalso be impacted by, among other things, the timing and size of cash flows andthe size of the fund. Market disruptions and regulatory restrictions could alsohave an adverse effect on a fund’s ability to adjust its exposure to the requiredlevels in order to track the index.Index funds typically have the following characteristics: Variety of investments. Depending on a fund’s benchmark index, the fund mayinvest in the securities of a variety of companies, industries, and/or governmentsor government agencies. Relative performance consistency. Because they seek to track marketbenchmarks, index funds usually do not perform dramatically better or worsethan their benchmarks. Low cost. Index funds are generally inexpensive to run compared with activelymanaged funds. They have low or no research costs and typically keep tradingactivity—and thus brokerage commissions and other transaction costs—to aminimum compared with actively managed funds.17

More on the FundsThis prospectus describes the principal risks you would face as a Fundshareholder. It is important to keep in mind one of the main principles ofinvesting: generally, the higher the risk of losing money, the higher the potentialreward. The reverse, also, is generally true: the lower the risk, the lower thepotential reward. As you consider an investment in any mutual fund, you shouldtake into account your personal tolerance for fluctuations in the securitiesmarkets. Look for thissymbol throughout the prospectus. It is used tomark detailed information about the more significant risks that you wouldconfront as a Fund shareholder. To highlight terms and concepts important tomutual fund investors, we have provided Plain Talk explanations along the way.Reading the prospectus will help you decide whether a Fund is the rightinvestment for you.
