The past two years have highlighted the importance of resilience to help us navigate challenges and impacts of the pandemic and other world events. Social and emotional learning (SEL) can help us respond to difficult situations and the resulting emotions as we learn to show empathy and care to ourselves and others.

In the videos below, hear from Marni Baker Stein, provost and chief academic officer at Western Governors University, and Hilary Simon, senior manager of social and emotional learning at WGU, as they discuss the importance of developing SEL skills and how WGU is supporting both students and employees in this endeavor.
