New Teachers Institutes may be established at other locations through many different ways. Funding might be provided wholly or in part by a Federal or state program, a national or local foundation, a school district that channels government funds to an Institute, or a college or university. Institutes established through the Yale National Initiative will have already accepted the "Understandings and Procedures" given below, and may then become members of the League of Teachers Institutes. That process will enable them to continue to receive technical assistance and collaborative support from the Yale National Initiative and from other members of the League, as indicated in the section on "Benefits to Participating Communities." That section also outlines the benefits that may be received by cities that are exploring or planning an Institute but are not yet League members. Further details concerning the process of affiliation and the benefits that may be received are included in the section on "Steps in Establishing a Teachers Institute."
