Our chapter of Psi Beta holds an induction of new members each semester (spring and fall). This also serves as a general membership meeting where we feature an outstanding guest speaker on a timely psychological topic. Here you can meet other Psi Beta members and officers and learn about our activities and how to become more involved.

The mission of Psi Beta is to promote professional development of psychology students in two-year colleges through promotion and recognition of excellence in scholarship, leadership, research, and community service.
