Warren studied a Bachelor of Sciences at the University of Adelaide and, for a period, worked as a cadet in the University’s Physiology Department, before going on to enjoy a successful career as chief chemist at an oil refinery.

Warren’s education provided him with opportunities, that he was determined to pass on to others.

“Graduating in the 1940s was a real turning point for me. I have paid all my debts in life, except one, and that’s to the University, which gave me so much.”Warren Hicks, alumnus and donor

Warren’s major gift to the University will be invested in attracting and retaining the very best minds in research and teaching from across Australia and around the world.
