Hillary Clinton named chancellor at Queen's University in Belfast

Posted: Updated:

Chappaqua's own Hillary Clinton has a new position across the pond.

Queen's University in Belfast has named her chancellor, marking the first time the Irish university has been led by a woman.

The school says Clinton has "made a considerable contribution to northern Ireland."

That is in reference to her role in helping end the fighting there while serving as first lady.

Her mostly ceremonial post as chancellor has a term of five years.
