Founded in 1929, Psi Chi is one of the largest honor societies in the United States with over 990 chapters. Duke has been a chartered member for over 40 years. The purpose of Psi Chi is to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology. To achieve these goals, Psi Chi offers a wide range of local, regional, and national programs including awards to fund research, conventions where undergraduates can present research, and the opportunity to publish research in its journal, Psi Chi Journal of Undergraduate Research.
