About the La Sierra University Chapter of Psi Chi

Psi Chi is the largest International Honor Society in Psychology, established in 1929. The mission of Psi Chi is to encourage excellence in scholarship and advance the science of psychology. Membership and its many benefits are lifetime. The local chapter of Psi Chi at La Sierra University was founded in 2000, by Dr. In-Kyeong Kim, and welcomes both Psychology AND Neuroscience majors and minors!

Members of the La Sierra University chapter of Psi Chi are provided with resources and support to pursue academic, research and career interests in psychology and related fields. Our local chapter provides opportunities for community and volunteer services and we also host events throughout the year to help members and nonmembers learn more about psychology and related fields. Biweekly meetings are held in Ambs Hall — for more information contact psichi@lasierra.edu; all interested persons are welcome to attend these meetings!
