Bridging the educational achievement gap is one of Extension’s identified issue
areas. This poster presents a three-year initiative dedicated to developing
programming that enhances understanding of social and emotional learning
factors and their contribution to closing the achievement and opportunity gaps.
The Extension Center for Youth Development is working with the Center for
Applied Research and Educational Improvement (CAREI), Extension Center for
Family Development, the Department of Family Social Science, and Youthprise
(a non-profit intermediary and funder) on this issue.
This poster will explore social and emotional learning frameworks, share
research on the importance of these skills, delineate strategies and delivery
methods (e.g., public symposia, regional forums, online webinars, issue briefs)
to move those strategies into programming. Also addressed are the internal
and external partnerships that enhance the visibility and value of social and
emotional factors in addressing educational disparities.
