The Solutions Journalism Educators Academy is a multiday training on teaching solutions journalism at the collegiate level. 

Held in summer on a university campus, the academy covers teaching the four pillars of solutions journalism; framing, sourcing and finding solutions stories; advocacy, rigor and impostors; community engagement and interviewing; story structure; creating learning goals and objectives; and refining assignments and instructional activities. 

Graduates of the academy have established new courses and modules on solutions journalism at their universities.
