About the Honoree: Michael A. Conley, Esq. ’84 Michael Conley began his journey to Iona at Bishop Hendricken High School in Warwick, Rhode Island, where he had the good fortune to be taught for four years by Brother Arthur Austin Loftus, the brilliant and inspiring teacher in whose name this award is given. In Brother Loftus’s classes, Michael learned Latin, Geometry, Trigonometry, Analysis, and Ethics. From Brother Loftus’s example, he learned the lasting personal satisfaction that comes from striving for and helping others to achieve excellence. Michael graduated summa cum laude from Iona College with a joint degree in English and Theology. He then attended the Boston University School of Law, where he was Editorin-Chief of the Boston University Law Review and graduated summa cum laude. After law school, Michael began his legal career as a judicial clerk, first for Judge Abner J. Mikva of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and then for Associate Justice Harry A. Blackmun of the Supreme Court of the United States—two remarkable jurists who faithfully applied the law but never lost sight of the real human beings affected by their rulings. Michael then embarked on a decade in private practice as an associate and then a partner in the intellectual property and appellate litigation practice groups at the law firm of Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro. He also served as managing partner of Pillsbury’s Washington, D.C. office, helping to implement the firm’s successful combination with the intellectual property firm of Cushman, Darby & Cushman. In 2000, Michael returned to the public sector as the Securities and Exchange Commission’s first Richard W. Jennings Attorney Fellow, working in the Office of the General Counsel. Michael then served as the SEC’s Deputy Solicitor before being appointed in 2011 to his current position as Deputy General Counsel, in which he helps oversee the agency’s extensive appellate litigation, adjudication, and enforcement review programs. He is the 2008 recipient of the Philip A. Loomis, Jr., Award, which is presented by the Federal Bar Association to an individual at the SEC who “displays the qualities of outstanding legal scholarship, analysis, and draftsmanship; the legal counselor’s ability to reconcile opposing viewpoints and create workable solutions to difficult legal and policy issues; and the highest caliber of personal and professional integrity.” In 2012, the SEC presented Michael with its Distinguished Service Award, the agency’s highest honor, “in recognition of his major contributions to the work of the Commission and the administration of the federal securities laws.” Michael lives happily in Washington, D.C., with his partner of 21 years, Mark Krikstan, the founding artistic director of the award-winning 1st Stage Theatre in Tysons, Virginia, and their two goldendoodles, Jupiter and Venus.

Reunion Gala 2014


About the Honoree: Brian J. Nickerson Ph.D., J.D. ’89 Brian J. Nickerson ’89 is a proud and thankful Iona College graduate. He has 20 years of multifaceted experience in academic institutions, including 12 years in senior management positions ranging from Program Director to the Chief Academic Officer at Iona College. Dr. Nickerson’s leadership skills were forged as an undergraduate under the tutelage of the Christian Brothers and other dedicated faculty and staff at Iona. This formative educational experience enabled, and eventually called, Brian to return twice to Iona: once as a faculty member and then again as the Dean for the School of Arts & Science, where he served for three years before becoming Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs. In his leadership roles at the College, he successfully led a challenging Middle States decennial re-accreditation, restored integrity in external data reporting, expanded multiple student success initiatives, worked collaboratively to develop or revise new academic programs, created the College’s first-ever “Learning Community” program and bridge program for college transition, expanded the faculty development process, secured external funds for a science and technology entry (CSTEP) program for economically disadvantaged students, and established the Thomas Paine Institute. Prior to these positions, he served in a combination of roles as Professor, Chair, and Executive Director (acting) of the Helene and Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship, and Director of The Edwin G. Michaelian Institute for Public Policy & Management, both at Pace University. Additionally, Dr. Nickerson has been teaching undergraduate and graduate students since 1993 with a teaching philosophy adapted from years of active engagement with Iona’s dedicated master teachers who have always driven students to understand their role in the world. Dr. Nickerson has recently stretched his academic leadership and teaching vocations to an applied heath-care setting where he currently serves as an Administrative Director at the prestigious Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Nickerson has also produced a large body of visible action research that have appeared in domestic and international publications and have been the basis for changes in public policy. Moreover, he has been a frequent guest commentator on critical policy and political questions for several media outlets including The New York Times, National Public Radio, ABC News and CBS News, among others. In honoring the legacy of service instilled in him by the Christian Brothers, Dr. Nickerson has also engaged in multiple public service roles ranging from a board member of an active local United Way chapter to directing a blue ribbon task force on health care reform. The Brothers and Iona College also bestowed upon him another gift: a love of life-long learning. To this end, Dr. Nickerson has earned not only his Ph.D. in Political Science from the Rockefeller College of the State University of New York at Albany, but also a Juris Doctor, and an MPA, from Pace University. He has successfully practiced law, but in a decision befitting the moral compass and vocation developed in him by the people of Iona College, he decided to leave law practice and dedicate his professional life to his true calling: the pursuit of mission-based higher education. Brian currently lives in Mamaroneck, New York, with his enchanting wife, Kira, and two children and Gael fans, Arielle and Dalton. You may occasionally hear them chant I-O-N-A, I-O-N-A; it doesn’t matter where you live, you can hear them!
