Founding and Conference
Psi Chi is the international honors society for psychology. The organization was founded in 1929.
The Stockton University chapter of Psi Chi started in 1979. Over 950 Stockton students have become Psi Chi members since then. In 2019, we celebrate 40 years of the Stockton Psi Chi Chapter!
Our undergraduate research conference was started in the Spring of 2008 by Stockton psychology professor, Dr. Christine Ferri.
Prior to that point we had our honors students present their research to psychology faculty, but not to the general public.
By combining the students' presentations of their honors research with the Psi Chi induction ceremony, a new Undergraduate Research Conference was created.
