SDLP South Belfast MP, Claire Hanna has welcomed the appointment of Secretary Hillary Clinton as the new Chancellor of Queens University Belfast, following the announcement this morning.

Ms Hanna said: “I very much welcome the appointment of Secretary Clinton, which is a positive reflection on Queens University and Northern Ireland. Secretary Clinton has made a considerable contribution to Northern Ireland and as an internationally recognised leader will be a very fine advocate for Queen’s and an inspirational role model for the student and alumni community.” 

“Secretary Clinton has a long-standing relationship with Belfast, spanning decades. This new role is an extension of her long-standing commitment to people in Belfast and across the North. As local MP, I look forward to supporting Chancellor Clinton, Professor Ian Greer and their colleagues across QUB.
