The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) is a national nonprofit that works at all levels within the higher education, public and private sectors to make it easier for people to get the education and training they need.
The leader in linking learning and work, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) pursues work at all levels within the public and private sectors to enhance learning opportunities for adults around the world.
