Welcome to the 
SUNY Potsdam 
chapter of Psi Chi

Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929. There are over 950 chapters nationwide. The aims of Psi Chi are summarized in two Greek words: Psyche (Psy-key), suggesting "mind" or scholarship, symbolizes enrichment of the mind; Cheires, (Ky-race), meaning "hands", symbolizes fellowship and research.

Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate men and women who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests, and who meet the minimum qualifications. Psi Chi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Psychological Society (APS).

The National office publishes Eye on Psi Chi magazine and the Psi Chi Journal of Undergraduate Research.
