Cash and Evie Nickerson Pledge $5 Million to Endow the School of Law Deanship

We are pleased and honored to share that alumnus Cash Nickerson (JD ’85, MBA ’93) and his wife, Evie Nickerson, have pledged $5 million to endow the School of Law’s Nickerson deanship. This generous investment will allow leadership to continue advancing the Law School’s academic profile and support our top-tier students, faculty, and staff.

As a celebrated community leader, Nickerson’s spirit of service is far-reaching and multi-faceted. He serves on the university’s Board of Trustees and the School of Law’s Board of Advisors. He teaches “Business Lawyering: Listening, Drafting, and Negotiating,” offered to law students each fall, and is also currently a doctoral candidate.
