Arizona State University Professor Emeritus


Growing up in north central Louisiana, music was a strong focal point for ASU professor Albert McHenry, and it’s a hobby that has helped him harmonize throughout his career in higher education. After more than 30 years of serving the university in various administrative and academic leadership positions, including chair, dean, executive vice provost and vice president, he is retiring.


His love of music, in a way, helped him determine his course of study when he was a student and put him on the road to a 45-year career in higher education.


Before becoming the founding dean of the College of Science and Technology at ASU’s Polytechnic campus, McHenry served on the Tempe campus as professor of technology and chair, for 11 years, of the Department of Electronics and Computer Technology and director, School of Technology. During his tenure as dean, enrollment in the college increased nearly 55 percent.


As the executive vice provost and vice president of the Polytechnic campus, he continued to help develop the professional and technological programs offered in the academic units at the Polytechnic campus.
