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.
