What is Psi Beta?

Psi Beta is the national honor society in psychology for community colleges. Psi Beta’s mission is to encourage professional development and psychological literacy of all students at two-year colleges through promotion and recognition of excellence in scholarship, leadership, research, and community service. The society functions as an association of chapters operated by Psi Beta students and faculty advisors, coordinated by a national office. Psi Beta participates with Psi Chi, the Society for the Teaching of Psychology, APA’s Committee on Baccalaureate and Associate Education (CABE), and other psychological organizations at APA, APS, and regional psychology conventions. Membership is offered through the Psi Beta chapter at your college.
