Your Privacy Matters
The Psi Chi Central Office is committed to
protecting your privacy. We absolutely do not sell or give out our members’
e-mail addresses or any other personal information to outside parties. Even
when members specifically select to make their online profiles public, only a
small amount of information is viewable (e.g., name, affiliated chapter, recent
blog posts entries, etc.) to other logged-in members only. We believe this is
an important step in safeguarding us all.
Participate in Crowdsourcing Research
We encourage you to participate in three
projects specifically developed for student involvement. CREP
invites you to replicate published studies and provides monetary
research awards for completed projects. IPP
invites you to add samples of situational, behavioral, and personality
predictors of situations. The
Archival Project invites you to read and code published studies for basic
hypotheses and effects. In each case, there are opportunities for authorship as
an individual, in a small group, or as a chapter.
New ACHS Grant
The Association of College Honor Societies has
introduced a new grant program to foster the development of Honors Councils.
These grants are for university-registered honor society chapters to develop
university-wide collaboration on cocurriculum high-impact practices, functional
organizational activities, and support for advisors and officers. Four $1,000
grants are available for pilot projects. Visit HERE
