Social & Emotional Learning (SEL)

According to the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), social and emotional learning (SEL) is “the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions”.


SEL encourages trusting relationships, a sense of purpose and belonging, skill development, and the contribution of learners to their communities. Within the contexts of SEL, schools and communities can support their people to reach their fullest potentials. It promotes opportunities and environments that support lifelong learning and equity in education.

There are studies conducted with tens of thousands of students that suggested that SEL strengthened students’ academic success. 2015 research found that there is a $11 return on every $1 spent on SEL programming.
