GlobalResolve was established at ASU in 2006 as a social entrepreneurship program designed to enhance the educational experience for interested and qualified ASU students by involving them in semester-long projects that directly improve the lives of underprivileged people, and/or those in underdeveloped nations throughout the world. Through GlobalResolve, ASU students and faculty collaborate with international universities, residents of rural villages, local governments, financial institutions, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to develop and disseminate no-tech, low-tech, and high-tech solutions that address pressing public health or environmental needs of a developing-world population. Because solutions developed by GlobalResolve are designed to be replicable locally, regionally, and internationally, the solutions also create the potential for profitable new business ventures that generate sustainable income streams for impacted populations.
