Psi Beta National Honor Society

About Psi Beta

Founded in 1982, Psi Beta is the national honor society in psychology for community college students. The society is part of the Association of College Honor Societies and is affiliated with the American Psychological Association and the Association for Psychological Science. The mission of Psi Beta is professional development of psychology students through promotion and recognition of excellence in scholarship, leadership, research, and community service. Psychology students become members through chapters at their colleges that are operated by the Psi Beta student members and faculty advisors.

A chapter of Psi Beta was established at Queensborough Community College in 2005 with the induction of 17 students. Over the past decade or so, nearly 300 QCC students have been inducted into the society with many pursuing careers in psychology. The chapter has sponsored events over the years such as meetings about choosing psychology as a major and fundraisers to help those affected by natural disasters.
