Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which people understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

The arts can have a profound impact on the social emotional health of your students. SEL helps young people grow into confident, caring citizens.  Join this inaugural SEL institute, and develop knowledge and skills to benefit your classroom & curriculum  through the arts!
