Social and Emotional Learning

We work with partners in the social-emotional learning (SEL) field to increase the adoption of solutions in middle and high schools that significantly increase the number of students who are Black, Latino, and/or experiencing poverty, who attend schools that integrate social, emotional, and academic development. These schools foster strong relationships and equitable learning environments attuned to and sustaining of students’ identity and cultural context in order to increase postsecondary success.

Social and Emotional Learning Investment Priorities

Our investments in this area focus on the following areas: 

Building a Field-led Research and Learning Agenda

Support a field-led learning agenda focused on defining the dimensions of quality within integrated SEL and the most critical conditions needed for implementation in schools and districts.

Supporting Exemplar SEL Solution Providers

Continue to support providers in refining their models to be exemplars of integrated SEL, broadly adoptable across a range of school and districts that serve students who are Black, Latino, and/or experiencing poverty.
