About us

MORNINGSIDE CENTER for Teaching Social Responsibility educates young people for hopeful and intelligent engagement with their world.

A national leader in fostering social and emotional learning (SEL), Morningside Center reaches tens of thousands of educators and students each year through an array of programs that develop such skills as handling anger, being assertive, solving conflicts creatively and nonviolently, and dealing well with diversity. We help teachers make their classrooms more caring and productive. We support students in taking leadership to improve their communities--from the classroom to the world.

Our programs include Resolving Conflict Creatively, which we founded in 1985 as a collaboration with the NYC Board of Education, and The 4Rs (Reading, Writing, Respect & Resolution), which integrates social and emotional learning and language arts for grades pre-K to middle school. Though our work has historically been concentrated in New York City public schools, we have begun to expand our research-based programs to schools nationally, from Maine to Alaska.
