Wagner Psi Chi earns national honors

Wagner College Psi Chi chapter members Kelly Connelly, Veronica Gallo, Jaime Weingarten and Clarissa Cimino

The Wagner College chapter of Psi Chi, the international honor society in psychology, has been designated a model chapter by the national organization.

Wagner’s Psi Chi chapter is one of only 29 chapters — out of 1,150 chapters nationwide — to be designated a model chapter this year.

The Wagner College Psi Chi chapter was very active during the 2021-22 academic year. Included among its activities:

  • In November, the chapter made Thanksgiving cards for residents of the Norwegian Christian Home & Health Center in Brooklyn.
  • In October, the chapter held a bake sale in the Wagner Union and raised over $200 for the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
  • Also in October, the chapter hosted a career discussion with Wagner psychology professor Jess England.
  • In March, the chapter members gathered to make gifts for the residents of the Sunrise Nursing Home in Brooklyn.
  • In February, the chapter had a very successful bake sale that raised over $200 to support Autistic Inclusive Meets. AIM was selected after extensive feedback from the Wagner student community.
  • 10 new members were inducted.

The success of the chapter is a testament to the membership and, in particular, the chapter's officers: Veronica Gallo, Jaime Weingarten, Kelly Connelly and Clarissa Cimino.

Psi Chi was founded in 1929 at Yale. The Wagner College chapter was chartered in 1966.
