Chapter Faculty Advisor

Advisor Guidelines
As a faculty advisor, you provide a strong link to your institution and psychology department, as well as contribute valuable insight, experience, and continuity to the chapters and the honor society as a whole. Your suggestions and recommendations guide chapter officers in effectively carrying out the chapter's purposes and goals.

Faculty advisors must be full-time faculty members at the school with the chapter, must hold a doctoral degree in psychology or a psychology-related field (i.e., PhD, PsyD, EdD), and must be members of Psi Chi.


Suggested Responsibilities

  • Certify the qualifications of prospective members, verifying that they rank in the upper 35% of their class and have an adequate GPA and number of psychology hours.
  • See that the chapter inducts new members at least once each year and that all members are registered at the Psi Chi Central Office.
  • Keep a permanent record of members.
  • See that the chapter reports activities to the Central Office at least annually.
  • Attend as many chapter meetings and activities as possible.
  • Make suggestions on how the chapter can participate in scheduled school activities.
  • Help to establish procedures for publicizing Psi Chi's goals, functions, and benefits of membership to psychology students and the campus at large.
  • Motivate and guide members to develop leadership and responsibility, to pursue psychology, and to do well academically.
  • Develop rapport among members and between members and the faculty.
  • Stimulate interest in the goals of Psi Chi and encourage participation in chapter projects, programs, and activities.
  • Encourage members to attend chapter meetings and state, regional, and national psychological association conventions when feasible.
  • Encourage students to enter papers in Psi Chi's graduate and undergraduate research award competitions, to present papers at conventions and conferences, and to apply for Psi Chi research grants.
  • Guide the chapter officers in implementing goals and in planning and conducting programs, projects, and activities.
