Associate Professor Emeritus

Department of Biological Sciences


Emanuel D. Pollack is currently the Visiting Associate Dean in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UIC.

During his tenure as associate dean, the graduation rate of the college has nearly doubled. He received his undergraduate degree from Roosevelt University and the M.S. and PhD in Biology from the University of Iowa. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, he joined the Illinois Institute for Developmental Disabilities. Pollack has published numerous scientific papers in the field of developmental neurobiology while teaching popular biology courses. As a certified university mediator and active participant in student judiciary processes, he has seen it all. In his non-UIC life, he has been a member and president of the Evanston/Skokie Board of Education and fellow and trustee of Roosevelt University.
