Michael Murphy, B.A. English, 2008
Shortly after graduating from UD, Murphy helped start the Annex House artist and musician
collective in Dallas, then began graduate school at the William Mitchell College of
Law in Minnesota, graduating Spring, 2012. As a 2012-13 Fulbright Scholar in Law
to Papua New Guinea, Murphy served the PNG National and Supreme Court Alternative
Dispute Resolution Center as a mediator, translator, and researcher.
UD provided me with a community devoted to exploring and discussing the great ideas
and difficulties of the human experience. The community taught me to collaborate,
stand in another's shoes, and problem solve. As a Fulbright Scholar, I will undoubtedly
rely again on the critical thinking and communication skills my liberal arts degree
provided, especially those that help me empathize with others' experiences.
