GlobalResolve has three main objectives:
Who we are
GlobalResolve was established at Arizona State University in 2006 as a social entrepreneurship program designed to enhance the educational experience for ASU students by involving them in real-world projects that positively impact communities with need around the world.
The idea for GlobalResolve grew out of a conversation in 2005 between four ASU professors who recognized the need for a multicultural, multidisciplinary approach-combining engineering, business, global studies, etc.-to encourage sustainable economic development in the Global South by helping solve water, health and energy problems with human centered design solutions.
Current faculty mentors for student project teams in GlobalResolve are: Dr. Mark Henderson, Dr. Laura Hosman, Dr. Shirley-Ann Behravesh, Dr. Mark Huerta, Dr. Buyung Agusdinata, Clinical Assistant Professor Ana Murphy, Faculty Associate Michael James and ASU PHD Student Miles Miller.
How we impact our world
Through GlobalResolve, Barrett students and ASU faculty collaborate with international universities, residents of rural villages, local governments, financial institutions, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to develop and disseminate no-tech, low-tech and high-tech solutions that address pressing needs in Global South communities.
