At the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning, we envision all children and adults as self-aware, caring, responsible, engaged, and lifelong learners who work together to achieve their goals and create a more inclusive, just world. How? Through a commitment to SEL.
What We Do
The “C” in CASEL stands for “Collaborative”: It’s both who we are and how we work. We’ve formed a community—spanning classrooms to statehouses—to make social and emotional learning (SEL) part of a high-quality and equitable education for all.Learn more about our mission and work
How We Started
From the seed of an idea in 1994, we have brought together a multidisciplinary network that includes researchers, educators, practitioners, and child advocates across the country who are passionately committed to SEL for all students.Learn more about our history
As a collaborative, we encourage outstanding achievement in the SEL field. Each year, we celebrate individuals who have made remarkable contributions in SEL research, policy, and implementation.Learn more about our annual awards
