About CASEL

The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) is the world’s leading organization advancing one of the most important fields in education in decades: the practice of promoting integrated academic, social, and emotional learning for all children in preschool through high school.


  • CASEL provides a unique combination of research, practice, and policy to support high-quality social and emotional learning in districts and schools nationwide. Leaders of the Chicago-based nonprofit organization catalyzed the collaboration that defined the field more than 20 years ago. Now, working closely with educators, researchers, policymakers, community leaders, families, and students, we are turning this momentum into a movement.
