ACHS INITIATIVE: "A MATTER OF ETHICS"
The Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS) has organized "A Matter of Ethics" initiative to promote a greater understanding of and commitment to ethical behavior. To emphasize the importance of upholding high ethical standards in our own discipline, Psi Chi encourages chapters to participate by doing at least one of the activities suggested by ACHS on its own or in collaboration with other campus honor societies.
