Chi Sigma Iota (CSI) Honor Society

Chi Sigma Iota - Chi Omega Upsilon CSI

Chi Sigma Iota is an international honor society for counseling students, professional counselors, and counselor educators. The society was established in 1985 by counseling professionals in the State of Ohio. Chi Sigma Iota's mission is to promote recognition to those in the counseling profession who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, research, and clinical practice. The members are dedicated to the counseling profession and the advancement of the profession. The Chi Omega Upsilon Chapter was a new Charter Chapter organized in 2017, with Deborah L. Duenyas, Ph.D. as chapter faculty advisor.   Membership Eligibility for membership is extended only to those students at Kutztown University in the Counselor Education Program who "have completed 9 credits and have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better."
