Research & Advocacy 

As part of advancing our mission, the LANL Foundation seeks to expand and enhance our approach to advocacy. We strive to be non-partisan, strategic and accountable in our advocacy and to align any advocacy work directly with our mission, vision and strategic plan. Our goal is to be a resource for non-biased information and data, quantitative and qualitative, as it relates to New Mexico communities. To fulfill this aspiration, we have started to engage in more research that draws data from local and national experts, as well as directly from the communities we serve. We ensure that the community’s perspectives and experiences inform our work and the community benefits from our efforts through sharing local information and voices as well as best practices.

The LANL Foundation's Research Report on the status of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in Northern New Mexico schools.

Integrating Social Emotional Learning in Northern New Mexico’s Schools

SEL nurtures our social, emotional, and cognitive development from birth to adulthood. This report is the result of extensive surveys and focus groups with hundreds of teachers and school leaders about their understanding and approach to SEL in their classrooms and schools. Our findings reveal strengths and weaknesses in how SEL is approached in our region.
