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 strives to collaborate with and serve the Tacoma community. Some of our events have included partnering with AP Psychology high school classrooms, making blankets for those experiencing housing insecurity, and volunteering to support families at local children's hospitals.
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.
