Chi Sigma Iota is the international honor society of professional counseling. It was established in 1985 through the efforts of leaders in the profession of counseling whose desire was to provide recognition for outstanding achievement as well as outstanding service within the profession. CSI was created for counselors-in-training, counselor educators, and professional counselors whose career commitment is to research and service through professional counseling.
Our mission is to promote scholarship, research, professionalism, leadership and excellence in counseling, and to recognize high attainment in the pursuit of academic and clinical excellence in the profession of counseling.
Master's of counseling students with a grade point average of 3.50 or better, have completed at least 12 credit hours in the counseling program, and are a student in good standing, are eligible for Oakland University's Chi Sigma Iota - Theta Chapter
. Eligible counseling faculty, professional counselors and alumni are also encouraged to apply for and maintain annual membership.
