About Psi Chi
Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of psychology. The mission of Psi Chi is to produce a well-educated, ethical, and socially responsible member committed to contributing to the science and profession of psychology and to society in general.

Psi Chi serves two major goals - one immediate and visibly rewarding to the individual member, the other slower and more difficult to accomplish, but offering greater rewards in the long run.

  • The first goal is to provide academic recognition to its inductees by the mere fact of membership.
  • The second goal is to offer a climate that encourages members' creative development.

Involvement with a chapter promotes five major advantages:

You can gain leadership experiences that last a lifetime. For example, consider running for a chapter officer position.

A strong sense of community with others in psychology is created through various chapter meetings and activities with fellow students and faculty.

Membership makes it easier for you to learn outside of the classroom through closer relationships with professors who encourage an interest in psychology, involve students in research projects, and write meaningful letters of recommendation.

You can, for example, help first-year students become accustomed to college life. You may also go on to become a faculty advisor and even form future chapters in order to teach younger generations.

You can gain recognition and take great pride in having helped others in your community through a variety of creative service projects.
