The purpose of Psi Chi is to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of the individual members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology. Our chapter strives to reach these objectives through volunteer and community outreach, involvement in NMU's psychology network, and creating skills for post-graduate experiences.
