What is Psi Chi?

Psi Chi is the national honor society for Psychology, founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of psychology. Psi Chi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Psychological Society (APS).

To achieve it's goals, the national organization holds national and regional conventions in conjunction with the psychological associations, research award competitions, and certificate recognition programs. The Society also publishes a quarterly magazine, Eye on Psi Chi, which is provided to each active member. Members are also eligible to submit manuscripts from independent research projects to be published in the society's Journal of Undergraduate Research.

You can join through NEIU, and once you join you're a member for life. A new membership drive will take place this semester.

Psi Chi meets, along with the Psychology club, every other Thursday.

For more information, contact the Psi Chi faculty advisor, Dr. Linda Rueckert (ext. 2585).
