Building a Better Image for Psi Chi
We are proud to announce the arrival Psi Chi’s new Brand Identity Guide located on the Faculty Advisor and Officer Admin pages of This guide improves the consistency of our Society’s image in order to (a) better distinguish Psi Chi as a professional organization, (b) encourage diversity, and (c) increase the value of membership for our members around the world.

Advisors, please carefully review this guide. Then, consider the following three items to ensure that your chapter’s message is up-to-date and reflective of Psi Chi’s purpose of supporting our members and the field of psychology.

  1. Do all of your chapter materials properly represent our 2009 transition from National to "Psi Chi the International Honor Society in Psychology?”
  2. Psi Chi owns its name, Symbols, Wordmarks, and Seal to protect the image of our Society. Is your chapter using Psi Chi’s Logos correctly and with permission as necessary? Log in and visit our Logo Permission page to learn more.
  3. Are the links on your chapter’s website and chapter materials still active, and do these resources express our current Membership Benefits, Eligibility Requirements, and other information?

You've Got Mail!
The Fall Issue of Eye on Psi Chi is available online. In celebration of Psi Chi’s 85th Anniversary, we will soon mail five copies of a special print edition to all chapter addresses. Please make these available at your chapter office and encourage others to read the Eye online!

Constitution Pro or Con Feedback
Psi Chi members are now invited to provide pro or con feedback on a series of Board of Director recommended changes to the Society’s Constitution. Visit HERE to read the proposed changes, and please submit your formal position statement no later than January 7, 2015.

Your opinion matters! All feedback will be publically available alongside your name on our website for others to see during the official voting period of February 1 to March 15, 2015. Statements must either be for or against the changes in their entirety—in other words, please write a persuasive piece as to why chapters should vote "yes” or "no” to endorse the proposed changes. If you have feedback that exceeds 700 words, please e-mail your statement to

Free Lapel Pins
Remember: You do not have to separately order lapel pins for students who joined Psi Chi this year; lapel pins are included with your new membership orders.

Induction Ceremony 101
To retain active status, chapters must schedule at least one induction ceremony a year. Before hosting each ceremony:

  • Advisors should View/Process Members online. Complete instructions are also available on the Faculty Advisor Admin page.
  • Send all registration materials to the Central Office at least three weeks in advance so new member packets can be mailed to the chapter address on file in the Central Office database.
  • Advisors may hold on to new member certificates for presentation at an induction ceremony. However, never host induction ceremonies until you have the certificates/member cards.
  • Log in online and download our helpful Rituals templates.

Other Opportunity
