Psi Chi welcomed 21,000+ new members during the 2018–19 academic year. Further, 12 brand-new chapters were approved by Psi Chi’s Board of Directors since last July, including two chapters that are located outside of the United States. As Psi Chi’s nears its 90th anniversary in September, the total number of chapters is now up to 1,150+.
Below is a map indicating each new chapter. If you are located nearby to any of these chapters (or if you know colleagues located at these chapters), please take a moment to welcome them to our Professional Organization. You can identify each chapter's advisor by visiting our Chapter Directory Search tool. We are always appreciative of those who help to continuously strengthen our network across the field of psychology.

More Good News
During the past year, Psi Chi has made advancements in many areas. For example, we conducted the #HelpHelpedMe Initiative, which sought to make others more comfortable seeking help whenever they might need it. A record number of awards and grants were bestowed to deserving students and faculty. And the first-ever guided Psi Chi Crowd collaborative research project was launched and has now become a huge success; more than 4,000 data points were collected across the United States and numerous other countries.
