Michele Brannigan joined the Herbst Academic Center staff at the University of Colorado as the Learning Specialist in 2008. Her qualifications include 20 years of teaching experience and in-depth academic administrative knowledge.

Brannigan's daily responsibilities consist of providing academic services to high risk/high needs student-athletes who are diagnosed with Learning Disabilities, ADHD or require additional support services for academics.  She works with and meets one on one with student-athletes across all sports to develop strategic plans for improving academic performances.  This is done in a focused learning environment in which student-athletes gain awareness of their individual learning styles and strengths, organization and time management strategies, test taking and various other critical thinking skills. Brannigan also identifies potential educational, emotional, focus and attention concerns and works closely with university resources and makes any necessary referrals.

Brannigan earned her master's degree in educational administration from CU-Denver and obtained her bachelor's in education from Boston College, where she graduated cum laude, and double majored in elementary and special education.  She received a minor in English. She was a special education teacher/coordinator in public school systems on the east coast as well as in Colorado for 15 years.

She played rugby at Boston College and continues to lead an active life with her husband, two sons and two dogs.
