Under the umbrella of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and School-Based Mental Health, investigators collaborate with young people and educators to co-produce scholarship that advances knowledge about the infrastructure needed for effective SEL implementation in schools. The delivery of high-quality SEL has been connected to improved academic success and wellbeing of young people. Recent scholarship has expanded this concept to infuse the explicit, additional goal of interrupting the (re)production of inequity in school environments (see Jagers et al., 2019). Led by Dr. Valerie Shapiro and team, this project addresses questions of immediate relevance for educational policy and practice striving to continuously improve SEL implementation.
