Eric Leafblad, HCAA President


Honors College Class of 1991, BA in History


I am a proud graduate of the Honors College. The relationships I formed in the Honors College defined my experience at UIC and have had a lasting impact on my life. I am a veteran of the U.S. Army, having served as a Cavalry Scout with the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment assigned to patrol the former West German border with East Germany and Czechoslovakia. A 1995 graduate of The John Marshall Law School, I have been an Assistant State's Attorney for the Cook County State's Attorney's Office since 1995. I am currently assigned to the Gang Crimes Unit, prosecuting primarily gang-related homicide cases.

I look forward to the opportunity to work closely with both the Alumni and current students to ensure that Honors College remains the best college at UIC.
