Dean's Advisory Council

Lisa Mifflin, '91

Lisa Mifflin, who holds a bachelor’s degree in finance (‘91) and master of public administration (MPA) (‘08), was originally born in Massachusetts, but relocated to Tampa as a child, where her family has lived since the 1920s. 

After receiving her degree in finance from USF, Mifflin began working for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), a bureau of the U.S. Treasury Department. 

In her current role with the OCC, Mifflin provides technical assistance and resources to bankers, community stakeholders and agency staff in her assigned markets of Florida and Oklahoma. 

A proud graduate of the University of South Florida, Lisa serves on the executive committee of the USF Black Alumni Society and the diversity committee of the USF Alumni Association. She is an inaugural member of the Ambassador committee for the USF Master of Public Administration (MPA) program and is a scholarship funder in the USF Black Leadership Network. Lisa earned her Bachelor of Science in Finance and MPA from USF. She also completed USF certificate programs in Community Real Estate Development (CRED Tampa Bay), Basic Economic Development (IEDC) and Post-Crisis Leadership (Muma College of Business).

Mifflin, who has established two scholarships in the USF Black Leadership Network (BLN), a partnership-based group founded in 2016 focused on engaging the community and enhancing the educational and leadership opportunities, credits her time spent working in the financial sector and her personal university experience as to why she wanted to give back. 

The two scholarships established by Mifflin include the Lisa Anne Mifflin Financial Services Scholarship, which supports diversity in the financial services industry and the increased representation of Blacks in the fields of finance and accounting, and the Lisa Anne Mifflin Public Policy Scholarship, which supports the increased representation of Blacks in the pursuit of advanced studies in public sector administration and policymaking. 

Beyond establishing these scholarships, Mifflin is also an active participant in several university committees and local community organizations.
