Welcome to the CWRU Psi Chi Chapter

Psi Chi is a national honor society whose purpose 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. Members participate in fundraisers, socials, community services, and the real world’s various psychological arenas. Membership in Psi Chi is an earned honor which lasts for life. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate students who are making the study of psychology one of their main interests and who meet the minimum qualifications.
