The Susan M. Hicks Memorial Fund


Susan HicksSusan M. Hicks, PhD exemplified all that one would hope for in a professional with a passion for international studies. She was endowed with a sharp intellect. She had the spirit of an educator eager to see young eyes light up with a passion similar to her own. And Susan was deeply concerned about the world and determined to make it a better place.

The Susan M. Hicks Memorial Fund will help to continue Susan’s professional mission long beyond her brief tenure at Pitt’s Center for Russian and East European Studies by providing financial support to students studying Russia and countries of the former Soviet Union.


Donations to the Susan M. Hicks Memorial Fund will be a powerful way to honor her memory.
