“Solutions Journalism” aimed to create journalism that not only exposed societal problems but also encouraged civic engagement to work towards solutions to those problems. The goal of the team was to write a series of articles for Duke and Durham publications, all of which include a “call to action” for readers. These action steps were backed by research of Duke professors and grad students to bring credibility to the work. The team published an article (incorporating Professor Bob Korstad’s research) in The Chronicle and the Durham Herald Sun. The team created a database of professors willing to contribute material to write.
