Dick MurphyAssistant Professor

I learned a tremendous amount about leadership and developed most of my management skills in the Marine Corps. I am not your traditional academic, besides technically learned knowledge I have developed "street smarts" and probably the greatest asset that I pass along to students is a respect for people, accountability, and a determination to succeed. I teach students to adapt, improvise and overcome, second place is the first loser. Failure is not an option!!!
