Celebrating SEL Day Together

 

The Leaders in SEL Education and Curriculum

Social and emotional learning (SEL) changes lives, schools, and communities by preparing young people for long-term academic, professional, and social success. The Sanford College of Education, in partnership with SEL4US will share this message with a worldwide community at the third annual International SEL Day on Friday, March 11, 2022.

The Sanford College of Education at National University is holding events all week to lead up to the final day. Throughout the event, Sanford College of Education will have an opportunity to highlight some of its own programs and special initiatives. We hope you will participate and reach out to your contacts to provide them with information about the week.
