Cengage statement regarding work with Arizona State University

“We have a strong, long-term relationship with ASU to design high-quality, affordable solutions that advance learning for Principles of Economics students.  This includes the use of our MindTap product, which includes an interactive e-textbook, homework and assessments. Students’ purchase of MindTap is similar to purchasing a textbook or other course materials. Cengage has never provided a grant to ASU as part of this business relationship and we have nothing to do with the university’s grading system.  We remain focused on working to support ASU in their efforts to help students succeed in this course, as we do with thousands of institutions around the U.S.”
