J. OSU Chi Sigma Iota (counseling honorary)

OSU Counselor Education Honor Society

CHI SIGMA IOTA: The International Counseling Academic and Professional Honor Society.
Chi Sigma Iota (CSI) was established on January 1, 1985, at Ohio University, based on a desire to provide recognition for outstanding academic achievement and outstanding service within the counseling profession. Today, it also provides a common link between students, educators, and practitioners. In 1989, Rho Chi Sigma, the national rehabilitation counseling honor society, merged with Chi Sigma Iota to form one honorary for both counselor education and rehabilitation services. The goal of the honorary is to promote scholarship, research, professionalism, and excellence in counseling. Members who join a local chapter are automatically connected to the international honorary. Currently, there are more the 180 chapters, both nationally and internationally, with more than 18,000 members.

The Alpha Lambda Rho Chapter at Ohio State was begun in the late 1980s, but by the early 1990s, had faded from the scene. The chapter was reinstated in 1998, with the installation of 22 new members. Today, the Alpha Lambda Rho chapter is very active and is a cornerstone of student involvement in the Ohio State Counselor Education and Rehabilitation Services programs.

The OSU Chapter of Chi Sigma Iota has developed a Carmen website for news, announcements, and discussion among current students. Click here to go to that website (password protected).
