Start or Renew a Chapter

To Start a Chapter:

  • Find core members: you need at least three students who will become EWH Affiliates.
  • Find a faculty adviser.
  • Appoint a president, vice-president and treasurer.
  • Have the Chapter officers and the faculty adviser sign the EWH Chapter Agreement (e-signature or print, sign and scan).
  • Submit/upload the Chapter Agreement. This can be done electronically (email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ), or via mail (see address below).
  • Pay fees; download payment instructions here. Affiliations fees are:
    • University-funded - $600 for unlimited number of students, or;
    • Student-funded Chapter - $35 per student (minimum of three student affiliates)
  • Hold your first meeting. Fill out the Chapter Roster, and email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
  • Plan activities in the first semester or first year. Be sure to contact EWH if you need ideas or support.

Other students who become members of your Chapter are encouraged to become EWH Affiliates in order to qualify for additional benefits. Chapters typically raise funds or secure grants from their school to cover affiliation costs and/or to support Chapter activities. 

We encourage Chapters to seek university funding to assist with Chapter growth and to receive an expanded package of benefits, including an unlimited number of student affiliations. We recommend that Chapter presidents discuss details of university affiliation with their faculty adviser.
