About Us

Organizational Summary:

The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), a nonprofit organization based in Chicago, and a trusted source for knowledge about high-quality, evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL). CASEL’s mission is to help make evidence-based SEL an integral part of preschool through high school education across the country. We are transforming American education through SEL by collaborating with leading experts and supporting districts, schools, and states nationwide to drive research, guide practice, and inform policy. Together, we are enabling all young people in our diverse society to lead healthier, happier, more productive, and fulfilling lives.

With committed and growing philanthropic funding and a cohesive strategic plan, CASEL is endeavoring to:

  • Support the implementation and document the impact of systemic SEL in large school districts and socio-demographically diverse school districts across this nation.
  • Capture, refine, and test the learnings to advance the research base for the process of implementing systemic SEL and share that knowledge broadly.
  • Identify and evaluate interventions and assessment tools to accelerate high-quality implementation of SEL nationwide.
  • Partner with SEL program providers, colleges of education, professional organizations, school districts, and researchers to support scaling of SEL.
  • Promote federal and state policies that encourage academic, social, and emotional learning.
  • Strategically communicate to foster widespread demand for SEL as an essential part of students’ education at the classroom, school, district, state, and national level.


CASEL is overseen by a distinguished 14-member Board of Directors. They include Timothy P. Shriver (Chair), Ann S. Nerad (Vice Chair), Roger P. Weissberg (Vice Chair), Stephen D. Arnold (Treasurer), Larry Aber, David Adams, Marc Brackett, Catherine Bradshaw, Deborah Delisle, Paul Goren, Janice Jackson, Chi Kim, Kimberly Schonert-Reichl, and Andrea Wishom.
