Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton has been appointed chancellor of Queen’s University in Belfast, a largely ceremonial role in which she is expected to serve through early 2025.
“It’s my great privilege to become @QUBelfast‘s 11th — and first female — chancellor,” Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, said in a tweet Thursday morning. “It’s a place I have great fondness for and have grown a strong relationship with over the years, and I’m proud to be an ambassador for its excellence.”
