Psi Chi and Psychology Club

Psi Chi

Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology, involving more than 890 college and university chapters. The Society has two primary goals. The first is to provide academic recognition to its inductees through membership. Psi Chi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Society. The second goal is to nurture and stimulate excellence in scholarship and professional growth. The national organization provides programs to help achieve these goals, including annual conventions, research award competitions, certificate recognition programs, national and regional chapter awards, and national service projects. The Psi Chi Journal of Undergraduate Research is also dedicated to the publication of student research and is published quarterly.
