|To specify the principles for securing funding from individuals, companies, foundations or other organisations (‘donors’ or ‘sponsors’) for University Chairs and establishing agreements with these donors or sponsors to name University Chairs.|
|The principles underlying Macquarie University facility naming rights are:
The policy applies across the University. It relates only to Chairs which are named as a result of donations or sponsorship. The University may also choose to name Chairs for other reasons including, for example, to commemorate distinguished former academics.The policy does not apply to naming of buildings, which is covered by a separate policy.
The University Council will establish a new Chair or accept funding for an existing Chair, only if this is consistent with the University’s strategic direction.
In general, an agreement to fund the full or majority cost of the Chair should come from the donor or sponsor before naming rights are considered.
Payment can be made either as a lump sum or at agreed intervals.
It would be usual for the name to be removed from the Chair if payments cease.
The Chair’s occupant:
Agreements with sponsors may establish the terms under which the occupant of a sponsored Chair might participate in joint activities with the sponsor; for example, to publicise research findings.
The University will, with permission of the donor or sponsor, acknowledge gifts in reports or publications.
The University will respect requests for anonymity.COMPLIANCE AND BREACHESThe University may commence applicable disciplinary procedures if a person to whom this policy applies breaches this policy (or any of its related procedures).
