Chi Sigma Iota is an international honor society that values academic and professional excellence in counseling. We promote a strong professional identity through members (professional counselors, counselor educators, and students) who contribute to the realization of a healthy society by fostering wellness and human dignity.

Our mission is to promote scholarship, research, professionalism, leadership, advocacy, and excellence in counseling, and to recognize high attainment in the pursuit of academic and clinical excellence in the profession of counseling.

Pi Chapter Logo

The purpose of the Pi Chapter of Chi Sigma Iota is to promote and recognize exemplary attainment in the study and practice of counseling. Students enrolled in Counseling programs leading to graduate degrees are eligible for membership. Students must have attained a QPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have completed a minimum of 9 credits in Counseling. Faculty, alumni, and professional counselors who have given evidence of distinguished scholarship and professional service are also eligible.

Membership in Chi Sigma Iota can make a valuable contribution to your professional development. Membership involves you in a network of professionals who ascribe to high standards of scholarship and practice. Local chapters encourage these aspirations through speakers, programs, and awards. The international headquarters of this organization also provides leadership through a variety of activities including a newsletter, member and chapter roster maintenance, annual recognition awards, support services to chapters, and an annual meeting.

The Marywood Pi Chapter of Chi Sigma Iota meets monthly and is extremely active in professional leadership and community service.
