Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology, was founded for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of psychology. Psi Chi’s mission is to produce well-educated, ethical, and socially responsible members committed to the science and profession of psychology and to society.
USF Chapter of Psi Chi
The USF chapter of Psi Chi has won multiple awards for papers presented at the Western Psychological Association's annual conference. In the spring of 2008 and 2009, in collaboration with the Psychology Department, Psi Chi helped organize and sponsored two department-wide undergraduate research conferences. In the spring of 2010, the chapter was awarded the Psi Chi Regional Chapter Award in the Western Region for schools with an enrollment of more than 5,000 students.
In the fall of 2008, Psi Chi at USF developed a website to promote its mission to keep members, majors and the larger campus community informed about Psi Chi events, and to post announcements for psychological research internships and job opportunities. In addition, each year Psi Chi offers a Graduate and Professional School Seminar in order to educate students about the application process and career options for graduate study in psychology.
