Hillary Clinton becomes the Chancellor of Queen’s University Belfast

International Edu News

Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton will become the University’s 11th and first female Chancellor. Mr Stephen Prenter, Pro-Chancellor and Chair of Senate, the University’s governing body, said, “I am delighted that Queen’s has chosen Hillary Clinton to be its new Chancellor.  Secretary Clinton has made a considerable contribution to Northern Ireland and as an internationally recognised leader will be an incredible advocate for Queen’s and an inspirational role model for the Queen's community.”

Accepting the position, Secretary Clinton, said: “It is a great privilege to become the Chancellor of Queen’s University, a place I have great fondness for and have grown a strong relationship with over the years.  The University is making waves internationally for its research and impact and I am proud to be an ambassador and help grow its reputation for excellence.”

Secretary Clinton will serve as the University’s new Chancellor, for a period of five years, with effect from 1 January 2020. The Chancellor fulfils three main roles – a ceremonial one which involves presiding at degree congregations; an ambassadorial role, where the office holder helps to “open doors” for the University as it seeks to fulfil its mission; and finally as an advisor, available to the Vice-Chancellor and senior management as a “sounding board” and to provide counsel and guidance.
