We are pleased to extend our warmest congratulations to SAGE Publications’ founder and executive chairman Sara Miller McCune. In June and July of this year, Ms. McCune was awarded an honorary fellowship from Cardiff University and an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters from Bath University for her work and contribution to the field of social sciences.
Speaking at the ceremony in Bath, Professor Colin B. Grant remarked:
“The wisdom of Sara Miller McCune does not stop in regards to founding one of the leading academic publishing houses in the world; in addition she is equally well known for her philanthropic works. Sara has had, and continues to have, an esteemed career both through her work in publishing and her wider philanthropic goals being an ‘agent of change in society by supporting the growth of social capital’. We were delighted to present her to our Chancellor to receive the degree of Doctor of Letters, in light of her work, of which she is most eminently worthy.”
Ms. McCune founded SAGE at the age of twenty-four in 1965. Her entrepreneurial spirit and unwavering dedication to education have guided SAGE in becoming a leading international publisher of journals, books, and digital media for academic, educational, and professional markets. Additionally, her support of a range of personal philanthropic projects have touched various global communities.
