Endowed and Sponsored Research Chairs

These research chairs are almost always established in recognition of a major financial commitment made by an individual, group of individuals, the corporate sector, or by the government.


Endowed and Sponsored research chairs help facilitate and support the research activities of faculty members within different strategic areas of research. Many Faculties are currently home to such chairs which are supported by a variety of sources, including private donations, the private sector, government, and not-for-profit organizations.
