Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility
Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility works hand in hand with educators to help young people develop the values, personal qualities, and skills they need to thrive and contribute to their communities—from the classroom to the world.
For over 30 years, Morningside Center has been the leading provider of programs to foster students’ social and emotional learning (SEL) in the New York City public schools, the nation’s largest school system.
Two major scientific studies have found that our programs markedly improve student behavior and social-emotional competency; reduce discipline incidents and suspensions; improve classroom climate for learning; improve attendance; and improve academic outcomes. Our 4Rs and Resolving Conflict Creatively Programs are among 23 SELect programs identified by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning as best in the country. Morningside Center is now bringing our research-validated approaches to school systems nationally.
