Suzanne and Bill Warren
Bill and Suzanne Warren's ties to TU represent a long-standing family tradition. As a nine-year-old boy, Bill Warren remembers waiting at his father's downtown office on Saturdays until it was time for them take their seats at Skelly Field for TU football games. His wife, Suzanne, fondly recalls taking their two children to summer tennis classes taught by Dean Orford, now TU women's tennis coach. The couple's strong interest in athletics, combined with a passion for community health as leaders of the Saint Francis Health System, found a natural partner with TU. Their generosity to the university has combined gifts in both interests.
Most recently, the Warren Clinic Endowed Professorship of Sports Administration has established a new certificate program in the School of Nursing's Exercise and Sports Science program.
And, the Warren Foundation Chair in Bioinformatics — an emerging discipline using statistics and computer science to manage and analyze biological data — will stimulate biomedical discovery through the partnership between TU and the Laureate Institute for Brain Research.
