About me

Hello Students!

My name is Darron Sherrill and I am originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My path to becoming an Academic Adviser for CEHD at the University of Minnesota, began at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF), where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Marketing Communication with a minor in Communication Studies. From there, I moved to Florida and Colorado for internships working for the United States Olympic Committee (USOC), before moving back to the Twin Cities area to complete the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program at UWRF.

I am passionate about education and helping others find success, through the numerous opportunities education offers. Previously, I worked for the largest school district in the state of Minnesota as an Achievement Advisor – working with students and families to help them find success and engagement within the schools and post-graduation.

I am excited to be an Academic Adviser in CEHD and I look forward to working with you all!

We are committed to providing a comfortable, inclusive, and respectful environment for all members of our communities. If there is information you feel would be helpful for us to know, including disability or other accommodation needs, I invite you to share it with me directly or let the front desk know when you schedule an appointment.

Drop-in advising

Wednesdays, 9:00-10:00 a.m. and Fridays, 1:00-2:00 p.m.
Note: At times during the semester these hours do fluctuate. It is always best to call ahead to ensure the drop-in hours are still available.

Drop-in hours will be different for every adviser.

Drop-in advising is usually limited to a 10 to 15 minute session. Students needing more time should schedule a 30 minute appointment by calling Student Services at 612-625-3339.

Example of issues for drop-in advising

  • Review of classes and class schedule
  • APAS review and updates
  • Petition discussions
  • Signatures for academic forms
  • Short Q&A
  • General discussion
  • Non-academic topics (such as time management, connecting on campus, etc.)
