SolutionsU® is a project of the Solutions Journalism Network: a nonprofit organization that seeks to rebalance the news, providing readers with critical reporting on society's problems and stories that explain how individuals, institutions, and communities are responding.
“SolutionsU® has unlimited potential: for students developing project ideas, in providing leads for field research on solving intractable social problems, and for helping educators with well-vetted and organized teaching content and materials.”
Robert Lyon, Assistant Professor
NYU Stern School of Business
“My students are definitely more engaged and more inspired. They connect these stories to their own lives and many of them express interest in wanting to be more involved, perhaps by volunteering or donating to organizations that are featured in the articles.”
Judit Torok, Founding Director of Pratt's Center for Teaching and Learning
“When [my students] learned that a community already exists that they can be a part of, and that they can learn from, that made all the difference. Solutions journalism stories can help deliver this powerful message.”
Marcy O'Neil, Assistant Professor
Michigan State University
“A great tool to prime the moral imagination. It enhances the ability to imagine the world that does not yet exist.”

“SolutionsU® is a lifeline for professors and students seeking to move beyond a problem mindset and understand how people are solving the thorny problems we face. Students leave inspired, realizing that they can make a difference.”
Jay Friedlander, Sharpe-McNally Chair of Green and Socially Responsible Business
