About The SEL Exchange

Hosted by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), the Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) Exchange is the nation’s largest convening on SEL. The SEL Exchange is a unique and timely opportunity for those who are committed to creating caring, productive, and equitable schools and communities that develop the whole child and ensure that all students can thrive. With demand for SEL at an all-time high, now is the time to come together, share what we know, and anchor ourselves in advancing high-quality research, practice, and policies. In 2020, the impact of COVID-19 on in-person convenings provided an opportunity for innovation and creativity.


The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) defined SEL more than two decades ago. As a force for field-wide unity, quality, and collaboration for 25 years, CASEL is dedicated to ensuring that a systemic approach to scaling SEL nationally is a sustainable model for generations to come. CASEL is proud to host a national forum focused on ensuring high-quality work while advancing learning and innovation in our field.

"The SEL Exchange has been very powerful. To someone who's looking to figure out how do they begin this work in their district or in their community, this is a great starting point. And for those who have been doing it for years, it's a great place to come together and connect, learn new ideas, and share your expertise of the work." - Ed Graff, District Superintendent
