The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) is a trusted source for knowledge about high-quality, evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL). CASEL supports educators and policy leaders and enhances the experiences and outcomes for all PreK-12 students.
CASEL’s mission is to help make evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) an integral part of education from preschool through high school.
Our work is critical at a time when educators, parents, students, and employers increasingly recognize the value of SEL. Together, we are united in our call for schools to educate the whole child, equipping students for success in school and in life.
We advance the knowledge base about SEL by synthesizing, conducting, and commissioning research.
We translate research into action through school district partnerships and field-tested resources and tools.
We support states in developing preK-12 SEL policies and guidelines, and educate federal policymakers about the value of SEL.
We bring together experts, practitioners, and policymakers to accelerate and sustain SEL in communities nationwide.
