Edgewood's chapter of Psi Chi, the national honor society in Psychology, was approved in 2006 and inducted its first members that May. Membership is by invitation and students are required to be in the upper one-third of their class in overall GPA.
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 qualifications.
Psi Chi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of theAmerican Psychological Association (APA) and the Association for Psychological Science(APS). Psi Chi's sister honor society is Psi Beta, the national honor society in psychology for community and junior colleges.
