International Honor Society in Psychology
The Psi Chi International Honor Society in Psychology was founded at Yale University in 1929. The purpose of the organization is to "encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of the individual members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology." Psi Chi members participate in activities such as tutoring, community engagement, social and intellectual gatherings, and professional development workshops. Membership is open to all Psychology majors who meet the academic qualifications. Visit About Psi Chi for more information on membership and its benefits.

Our chapter is the liaison for the Puget Sound Psychology Department's partnership with Lincoln High School's AP Psychology classroom. It has been great sharing our mutual excitement about all things Psychology! Check back for more pictures of our fun after school visits.
One of the missions of Psi Chi is to promote the science of Psychology. Recently, we hosted a symposium and invited Psychology majors to share their research in an informal poster and paper presentation setting.
