Our chapters are what define ESW as an organization. Each chapter is run independently by local leaders who determine the path their chapter takes.  Some chapters are focused on campus projects, some on comunity projects, some on international project, and some on all of the above.  This localized but connected approach is that chapters can learn from each other what works and what doesn't to avoid repeating the same mistakes.  This is done through monthly communication between chapter leaders. In addition to working on their own separate projects, chapters work together on national initiatives which ESW as an organization facilitates.  Each chapter adds a unique element to help shape ESW as a whole.

Below is a listing of our currently active chapters, representing 50 schools in 23 states and one province, plus three professional chapters. Colors denote our four regions for 2014-2015, with red markers denoting professional chapters. Don't see a chapter in your area? Consider starting a chapter locally!
