Long Island University hosted over 900 administrators and teachers for two social emotional learning (SEL) training sessions, in conjunction with the Sanford Institute. The sessions were held on the Brooklyn campus and featured the First Lady of New York City Chirlane McCray, NYC School Chancellor Richard Carranza and LIU President Dr. Kimberly Cline. Earlier this year, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a partnership between the City’s Department of Education and Sanford Harmony, a research-based PreK-6 SEL program. In partnership with LIU, Sanford Education Programs and National University System have provided an early-childhood education to 8 million children through more than 18,000 schools across the nation.
