Sara Miller McCune Donates $5 Million to UCSB


SAGE Publications cofounder Sara Miller McCune (pictured above) recently gave a $5 million gift to UCSB. A committed donor to the university’s humanities and arts programs and its library, McCune has supported the campus for two decades. “I have a great deal of respect and admiration for what goes on at UCSB,” McCune said. “I guess I tend to put my money where my mouth is. That’s an old phrase, but it’s a good one.”
