    Since 1985 a National Advisory Committee, composed of Americans distinguished in the fields of education, private philanthropy, and public policy, has assisted the Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute with the dissemination, evaluation, and development of its programs. The Committee provides a variety of perspectives that aid in examining what each constituency for Teachers Institutes would regard as the best evidence of their effectiveness.

    As the Teachers Institute played a leading role in the national movement for university-school partnerships, the National Advisory Committee assisted in determining how it might make the most effective contribution to institutions and schools in other communities. The Committee has provided seminal advice on the permanent endowment of the Institute, on the results of the National Demonstration Project, and on the goals for the Yale National Initiative to strengthen teaching in public schools. Members are invited to serve, from time to time, by the President of Yale University. All individuals who have served on the Committee, and positions they have held during their service, are listed below.
