to high-quality course materials will empower them to take control of
their learning and enhance their engagement with their courses. We are
delighted to be partnering with Copia to expand the inclusive access
option through a customizable, user-friendly platform.”

“SAGE has a strong commitment to supporting students and instructors and
is a trusted content partner of Copia’s,” said Ben Lowinger, executive
