Psi Chi Honor Society
The Montclair State University chapter of Psi Chi was chartered on May 9, 1971.
Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of psychology. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate men and women who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests, and who meet the minimum qualifications. Psi Chi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Psychological Society (APS). Psi Chi's sister honor society is Psi Beta, the national honor society in psychology for community and junior colleges.
Psi Chi functions as a federation of chapters located at 1,000 senior colleges and universities in the USA. The National Office is located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. A National Council, composed of psychologists who are Psi Chi members and who are elected by the chapters, guides the affairs of the organization and sets policy with the approval of the chapters.
Meetings are held on Wednesdays at 4:00pm in Dickson Hall #283A. For more information about membership and induction, please contact Dr. Debra Zellner at 973-655-4327.
Multicultural Psychology Scholars
By the year 2025, it is estimated that racial/ethnic minorities will account for more than 40% of the United States population. In light of these projections, the need for racial/ethnic minority psychologists will increase considerably in the next two decades. However, the recruitment and retention initiatives of ethnic minority students in higher education continues to be a national issue of concern for four-year colleges of universities. The Multicultural Psychology Scholars (MPS) aims to address this pressing issue in higher education by being a source of information and support to all psychology students at Montclair State University, to aid in the recruitment and retention of multicultural psychology students in order to prepare psychologists who will be effective in a diverse, multicultural society. As a Class III organization of the SGA, we aim to serve the student body. MPS meets on Wednesdays at 3:30 PM in University Hall 2032.
