Need help? Complete instructions for our online system are available HERE.
All Suggestions Welcome!
You can now submit to our new Faculty Advisor Suggestion Box located on the Faculty Advisor Admin page under Policies and Reports. Your outstanding efforts to support our Society continually encourage students to develop leadership and problem-solving skills to better themselves, their communities, and the field of psychology. We look forward to hearing your creative ideas about potential improvements to your faculty advisor role, as well as possible future Psi Chi programs, resources, and more.
Serve on Our Research Advisory Committee
We congratulate Dr. John Edlund (Rochester Institute of Technology, NY) for becoming Psi Chi’s first Research Director and Research Advisory Committee Chair. His charge is to help members take advantage of changes in the methods of designing, recruiting, and administering research including collaborative and online methods. Faculty interested in serving on the RAC should contact him at email@example.com
Need Advice on Induction Ceremonies?
The Winter issue of Eye on Psi Chi includes the second article in our new Advice for Advisors column. In this article, Dr. Vincent Prohaska (Psi Chi Past-President, 2007–08; Lehman College, CUNY) speaks about “Illustrating Chapter Values at Your Induction Ceremony.”
Do you have advice that other advisors would benefit from? Please help make this column a success by submitting an article HERE.
Visit Our Psi Chi Exhibit Booth
We would like to specially invite our faculty advisors to visit our Psi Chi Exhibit Booth at the upcoming WPA (Booth #16) and MPA (Booth #112) conventions. Free Psi Chi swag, samples of graduation regalia, copies of Psi Chi Journal and Eye on Psi Chi, and handouts about Psi Chi and our partners will be available. Psi Chi Board members and Central Office staff look forward to meeting you.
Help Students Publish Their Research
This summer, consider offering to mentor a few of your best students by helping them submit their original empirical research to Psi Chi Journal for potential publication. Our Journal is peer reviewed and accessible to both PsycINFO and EBSCO Academic Search Complete databases. If your students are accepted, they will get a first-hand opportunity to experience the publication process and receive valuable scientific research advice from you and your academic peers.
