The first step is to work together to fundraise a total of $3M (CAD) to support the creation of the endowed Tamil chair. The funds go directly to the University of Toronto.
Next, the University of Toronto will begin the recruitment process in accordance with University policies and procedures.
Once recruited, the Tamil Chair will be based in the academic unit of a department at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus.
