RSU Psi Chi Chapter Earns Fifth Model Chapter Award
The Rogers State University Chapter of Psi Chi, the national honor society in psychology, achieved its goal of earning its fifth Model Chapter Award. This is also the fifth consecutive year that the RSU chapter is the only chapter in the state of Oklahoma to earn this honor.
"I am proud of the Rogers State University Psi Chi members and alumni who have accomplished so much to earn this award, and I am honored to be part of such an outstanding organization," said Dr. Kevin Woller, Psi Chi advisor and associate professor of psychology at RSU.
The organization's purpose is "to encourage, stimulate and maintain excellence in scholarship, and to advance the science of psychology." Many of the society's members have gone on to distinguished careers in psychology.
Psi Chi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of both the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Society. The organization has grown into one of the largest honor societies in the world with more than 1,000 chapters at colleges and universities across the U.S. Chapters recognize academic achievement by granting membership in the society, sponsor programs and activities that enhance the regular curriculum, and provide practical experience in the field.
The RSU Psi Chi officers are Pauline Ramon of Tulsa, president; Tasha Franks of Claremore, vice president; Lanaye Borden of Claremore, secretary; Theresa Lillegard of Tulsa, treasurer and Rebecca Bue of Claremore, SGA representative.
