Sudden Death of Queen’s Vice Chancellor, Patrick Johnston.

Patrick JohnstonThe board and staff of the Centre for Cross Border Studies were deeply saddened to learn of the untimely death of Professor Patrick Johnston, vice-chancellor of Queen’s University Belfast (a founding member institute of the Centre).

In his time as vice-chancellor, Professor Johnston was very supportive of the work of the Centre and was a very valued council member of Universities Ireland, a network of the 10 universities on the island of Ireland, which is administered by the Centre.

We extend our deepest sympathies to Professor Johnston’s wife and sons, wider family circle, friends and colleagues at this very sad time.
