Quarterly Global Chapter Calls

​Every quarter, the IHI Open School hosts a Global Chapter Call. The calls provide an opportunity for new and seasoned Chapters Leaders, Chapter members, Faculty Advisors, or those interested in starting a Chapter, to connect and discuss best practices, opportunities, and common challenges they've faced in their work. The calls are also a great chance to share the local work your Chapter is doing with a global network of leaders and innovators.

Every year new IHI Open School Chapters are launched. Each institution's approach may look a little different, but there are key elements we’ve found lead to the greatest success. Current and former Chapter Leaders share what they’ve learned that others can implement to get their Chapters off the ground and on their way to an active, sustainable future.
