Psi Chi Honors Society was founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship,

and advancing the science of psychology. Psi Chi is one of the largest honor societies in the United States with more than 890 chapters. Our chapter programs are designed to help our members become aware

of opportunities in the field of psychology and to interact with other members, faculty, and other psychologists. These programs also make active efforts to nourish and stimulate professional growth and to provide practical experience in the field. The National office is located

in Chattanooga, Tennessee and consists of a council of psychologists who are Psi Chi members. Undergraduate and Graduate men and women who meet the requirements are welcome to join. Psi Chi is a member of The Association of College Honor Societies (APA), and is

an affiliate of the American Psychological Association (APS).

The Psychology Club is a less formal organization that performs all activities with Psi Chi, with the exception of the graduation and induction ceremonies. This club is open to anyone who wants to learn more about professional psychology and get more involved with other students and faculty members in the Psychology Department. Unlike Psi Chi, there are no membership requirements so anyone is welcome to join the Psychology Club and attend the joint meetings and activities.
