To help sustain its work in research, teaching, and service, the University of Saskatchewan is fortunate to have the support and assistance of numerous benefactors, some of whom wish to provide their gifts in the form of chairs or professorships.

An initiative to establish a chair may come from a department, college, school or any other interested party. 

The university welcomes such support and to facilitate this process the Joint Committee on Chairs and Professorships has been established to ensure that academic, administrative and financial concerns are addressed simultaneously.  Please read the establishing Chairs and Professorships policy.


The full Guidelines for the Establishment of Chairs or Professorships with Appendices outline the categories and conditions of chairs and professorships.
