Meet our advisors - Dametrius Coleman

Dametrius (he/him/his) earned his B.A in Sociology, as well as a Master’s in Public Administration with a focus in Higher Education Administration, at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). During his time at UIC, Dametrius participated in several sports clubs including basketball, flag football, weightlifting & softball. Outside of sports clubs, he participated heavily in a Pokémon trading card student group! Dametrius also worked at UIC for a number of years within admissions and the urban planning department as a Recruitment Coordinator & Advisor. He enjoys helping students find what he calls their “Authentic Swing” (meaning their true selves). When he is not working, you can find him rooting for his hometown Chicago Bears and Cubbies, biking on Minnesota trails, collecting sneakers, hanging with his Black Labrador Tucker, and passionately debating if Batman with prep-time beats any superhero in DC and/or Marvel.
