Richard S. Mroz, AS ’83

"It was at the University of Delaware that my life and experiences unfolded exponentially. The University has brought me great friends and acquaintances, the exposure to cultural and social diversity and a tremendous academic foundation that provided me the tools and confidence to excel in my careers of law and public service. I continue to support UD and encourage all my fellow alumni to do so as well."
—Richard S. Mroz, AS ‘83
