What is CSI?
CSI 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 MissionPromoting Excellence in the Profession of Counseling
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.
Founded at Ohio University in 1985, Chi Sigma Iota has over 90,000 members who have been initiated into the Society. We are growing by over 6,000 new members per year. They are affiliated with campus-based chapters contributing to their counselor education programs and communities. Chapters are supported at least in part by funding from CSI.
One of the largest associations of professional counselors in the world, CSI's annual active membership is equally balanced between professional and student members. Among the professional members over 600 are counselor educators and supervisors while the remainder are practicing counselors in all settings and specialties of counseling.
CSI activities occur primarily through our 286 active chapters located in counselor education programs in five regions in the United States and in counselor training programs beyond U.S. borders.
