Making Caring Common, a project of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, envisions a world in which children learn to care about others and the common good, treat people well day to day, come to understand and seek fairness and justice, and do what is right even at times at a cost to themselves. Since 2013, Making Caring Common has worked toward this vision with families, educators, and communities through its Caring Schools Network, #CommonGood Campaign, and Empathy in Schools Research Initiative. Making Caring Common’s work spans a wide range of topics, all connected by a commitment to forefront caring and concern for the common good at school, at home, and in communities. Visitors to the site can explore resources by key topics—Bias and Bullying; Caring, Empathy, and Concern for the Common Good; College Admissions; Sexual Harassment, Misogyny, and Romantic Relationships; and Social–Emotional Learning (SEL). They can also explore Resources for Educators and Resources for Families in detail.

no other, and we were ready for anything.
