Psi Chi @ Cal State LA is a chapter of the national student organization whose purpose is to serve psychology students on a local level. Our goals are to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship amongst our students, and advance the science of psychology. Our continuing efforts are aimed at nourishing and stimulating professional growth through programs designed to augment and enhance the regular curriculum and to provide practical experience and fellowship.

Psi Chi provides a student office where relevant information regarding conferences, conventions, scholarships, or research opportunities open to psychology students and Psi Chi members is regularly posted.
