  • is this really unique to research chairs? Or is the process for other academic positions the same? Are there maybe only a few steps that are unique to RCs? Ttenbergen 15:16, 19 September 2017 (CDT)
    • There are points unique to Research Chairs. I am not involved with procedures for other positions. ikr
      • But are the majority of the points the same? If it is for 90% of checks, then the remaining 10% could always get a "for research chairs" with them, and we would still benefit from one optimized list. User:Ttenbergen 16:16, 5 September 2018 (CDT)
