“Student leaders co-design and lead weekly lessons to explicitly teach SEL skills while addressing student concerns such as relationships, self-management, inclusion and mental health. In pursuit of an equitable campus with a common understanding of SEL, we will continue to expand the accessibility of our SEL trainings to reach student leaders from diverse extracurricular activities. We will also facilitate a student-led SEL conference for students within our vertical team. Our goal is to teach a common approach to community-building so student leaders may continue a diverse, solution-driven dialogue to address our campus struggles and create a more unified community.”
