In recognition of his humanitarian endeavors, ASU engineering professor and sustainability scientist Mark Henderson was recently presented the Making a World of Difference Award by Tempe Sister Cities. Henderson is the director of GlobalResolve, an organization he co-founded in 2006 with three fellow ASU faculty members.
GlobalResolve was created to engage the university’s engineering faculty and students with communities in developing countries to help them improve their living conditions. Today, more than 200 students and 15 faculty members participate in the social entrepreneurship and sustainability program each year. They are contributing to almost 50 projects in 10 countries that focus on boosting local economies and upgrading water, sanitation, energy, agriculture, health and education infrastructure.
