The Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute, founded in 1978, brings the resources of Yale University to an entire school district in which 43 schools serve more than 20,000 students. Seventy percent of the students in the New Haven Public Schools come from families receiving public assistance, and 84 percent are either African American or Hispanic. There are about 1,000 teachers eligible for participation in the Institute. On successful completion of the program, a Fellow may, if pursuing a graduate degree, petition for certification of course of study.
The founding director of the Institute is James R. Vivian.
