Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) is the nation’s leading organization advancing the development of academic, social and emotional competence for all students. Our mission is to help make evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL) an integral part of education from preschool through high school. Through research, practice and policy, CASEL collaborates to ensure all students become knowledgeable, responsible, caring and contributing members of society.

CASEL envisions the world’s best educators, scholars, policymakers, and child advocates working together to promote evidence-based approaches and policies that enhance the social, emotional, and academic development of all preK-12 students. We want school-family-community partnerships across America to provide quality education and life experiences so that all students become engaged, lifelong learners who are responsible, caring, and contributing family members, friends, workers, and citizens. And we want all high school graduates primed to lead fulfilling, productive lives and to relate positively and constructively with others locally and globally.
