Welcome to CASEL, the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning. Our mission is to help make evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) an integral part of education from preschool through high school. CASEL and our broad network of collaborators are working together to turn momentum for SEL into a national movement.
