The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning defined SEL more than two decades ago. Today, we support state, districts and schools nationwide and convene leading thinkers to ensure SEL is a priority in every school nationwide.

Through research, practice, and policy, we collaborate with thought leaders to equip educators and policymakers with the knowledge and resources to advance social and emotional learning in equitable learning environments so all students can thrive.
Anticipating an update to our most frequently accessed resource, the CASEL Guide to Effective SEL Programs, CASEL has published revised criteria for evidence-based SEL programming. Evidence-Based Social and Emotional Learning Programs: CASEL Criteria Updates and Rationale provides rationale for updates that are planned for release in 2021, reflecting the significant progress the field has made.
