About Us

Friends of The Queen's University of Belfast, Inc. is an independent non-profit 510(c)(3) organisation that supports Queen's. It is run by a board of volunteers - some are graduates of the University, while others are friends of Queen's and Northern Ireland.

From time to time the Friends organise social events and activities for students visiting on work placements or exchange programmes, all aimed at keeping Queen's graduates in the US in touch with their Alma Mater and each other.

Currently, there are over 1,200 Queen’s graduates based in the US, living and working across all 50 states, making an impact on, and a difference to, their local community. Many of our alumni are members of LinkedIn groups across the USA - to find out more visit our social networks page for the group in your area.
