The Best Conference To Develop Social-Emotional Learning Practices For Your School

7 Mindsets University is a 2-day SEL conference designed for principals, administrators, and teachers

7 Mindsets University is a 2-day conference designed to help your team better understand and implement the key principles of SEL. You’ll hear from leading experts and learn from other educators just like you. By the end of the conference, you’ll have a clear plan for creating a cultural transformation in your school community.

It's not about the "program." Mindsets University is the only conference on social emotional learning that enables school leaders to plan initiatives through the lens of cultural transformation, while embracing and adapting to each community's unique vision.
