The Dominican College Chapter of Psi Chi Recognized with the Model Chapter Award
For the second year in a row, Psi Chi - The International Honor Society in Psychology, has identified the Dominican College chapter as outstanding. Model Chapter Awards of $100 each are presented annually to recognize and reward Psi Chi chapters that consistently maintain outstanding records of membership inductions, chapter correspondence, service projects, and other criteria associated with being an outstanding chapter.
Psi Chi was 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 serves two major goals – to provide academic recognition to its inductees by the mere fact of membership and, through local chapters, to nurture the spark of that accomplishment by offering a climate congenial to members' creative development. In addition, the international organization provides programs to help achieve these goals, including Society and regional conventions held annually in conjunction with the psychological associations, research award competitions, and certificate recognition programs.
