Welcome to Psi Chi
The International Honor Society in Psychology!
Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship and to advance the science of psychology. Psi Chi is open to both undergraduate and graduate students with psychology as a major emphasis of study who meet the minimum requirements. Psi Chi publishes the Eye on Psi Chi and the Psi Chi Journal of Undergraduate Research for its members. The total number of memberships is now over 500,000 across the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, Ireland, and New Zealand.
The two main goals of Psi Chi are to provide academic recognition of scholarly excellence and to offer a climate of creative development to its members. The CSUB chapter does this through workshops, research conferences, community service, and social events. Our chapter works closely with the CSUB Department of Psychology to promote psychological research, both basic and applied, and to support excellence in our psychology majors.

"Psyche may suggest mind. Psyche may also suggest scholarship and enrichment of the mind."
"Cheires meaning 'hands' stands for fellowship and research."
"Our motto, 'Psyche Cheires' may be expressed in these words: cooperation in the investigation and cultivation of the mind."
