Our Chapter

Truman State University’s Psi Chi chapter was chartered on April 15, 1976. Over the years, our chapter has hosted dozens of research conferences, faculty and student gatherings, and guest speakers.

Anyone is welcome to come to our general meetings and psychology students are strongly encouraged to seek active membership in Psi Chi to further connect with the community of scholars at Truman State and elsewhere.

Research Conferences

Every spring, Truman’s Psi Chi chapter hosts an independent research conference on campus. Students who have research to share are given a unique opportunity to refine their presentation skills and demonstrate their capacity to produce graduate-quality academic work. The Psi Chi Research Conference is not connected to the more general Student Research Conference hence students are welcome to apply to both events.

Student and Faculty Gatherings

Our chapter strives to bridge the gap between psychology students and faculty. Our chapter hosts multiple events throughout the school year where all who are interested in psychology are welcome to come, relax, and enjoy food provided by the chapter.

Guest Speakers

Each year, our chapter invites a guest speaker to campus to discuss matters of relevance to psychology students at Truman. In the past we have welcomed individuals from schools such as Washington University in St. Louis to come talk about opportunities in psychology after Truman.
