Vicki Mitchell joined the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics in May 2002 after 15 years with the USF Development Office. She came to USF in 1986 from the Florida Board of Regents Office where she served on the legislative relations staff for the State University System.
After terms as director of development research and director of major gifts at USF, Mitchell was appointed associate vice president for university development in 1993. In that position, she was responsible for oversight of all university fund raising and charged with planning a comprehensive fund-raising campaign that launched in 1995.
A veteran of two major fund-raising campaigns at USF, Mitchell led efforts that raised more than $40 million for the University. Most recently, she served as campaign director for the "Great Achievements-Great Expectations Campaign" that brought in $256 million before ending in June 2001.
