It is always exciting to see and share local news articles about Psi Chi chapters!
Has your chapter been in the news lately? Psi Chi’s mission is “recognizing and promoting excellence in the science and application of psychology.” And of course, one great way to “recognize and promote” your members’ academic and philanthropic accomplishments is by sharing their activities in the local media.
Consider contacting local editors in your area to see if they are interested in sharing your Psi Chi stories. For example, local news channels, university publications, and department publications are all appropriate outlets to discuss Psi Chi and your chapter endeavors. You might also consider publishing Psi Chi news yourself through your own local Psi Chi chapter website, blog, and/or social media platforms (learn more).
Here are some specific topics that local news outlets might be interested in:
- new members inducted,
- chapter anniversary milestones,
- upcoming and past chapter service events, and
- honors received by your members.
Need ideas? Below, we’ve collected some recent articles from the spring semester published through local news channels, university publications, and chapter websites.

Psi Chi members achieve so many important things around the world—and these efforts should not go unrecognized! We hope that this list is helpful and uplifting as you begin the process of “recognizing and promoting” your members’ good deeds and hard work.
Please also remember that officers and advisors are encouraged to submit summaries of their chapter’s accomplishments for publication in Eye on Psi Chi magazine. Our blog, Psi-Chi-ology Lab, accepts engaging personal stories and endeavors by local Psi Chi members’ too.
