We were very pleased to honor criminal justice alumnus, Mr. Tom Ullom ’93 at the Annual College Alumni Awards Ceremony on March 18. Recipients are selected from each college to acknowledge and celebrate their accomplishments for their service and work in their respective fields.

Ullom began his career in federal law enforcement in 1993 and has worked investigations related to domestic and international drug trafficking, fugitive apprehension and various complex fraud schemes. He has served in the U.S. Marshal’s Service, as a special agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and in the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Inspector General. In 2011, he was promoted to assistant special agent in charge for the U.S. Department of Transportation, Office of Inspector General, Chicago Regional Investigations and in June 2015 to special agent in charge in the same region. He currently leads an office conducting fraud, safety and hazardous materials investigations in 11 states relating to various transportation systems.

“Tom has been a great friend to the college,” College of Health and Human Services Dean Marie Huff said. “He has returned to campus to speak to student groups who are interested in federal law enforcement and serves as a great role model for our students.” He also served as a keynote speaker at the 2015 Health and Human Services annual Homecoming Lecture.
