Advance a Chair


To advance a Tier 2 Chair to a Tier 1 during the term of the Chair, universities will need to use the same nomination process as for new nominees. Please note, however, that in order to advance a Chair in this way, the Chair must be continuing at the same institution. If the Tier 1 Chair will be held at a different institution, the advancement nomination will be considered a new Tier 1 nomination.

If a nomination for advancement is not successful it is possible to submit either a Tier 2 renewal nomination for the chairholder (if applicable) or another advancement nomination.
