Please note:  

There have been reports that CSI leaders, interns, and chapter leaders have recently received requests that appear to come from CSI Headquarters staff and Executive Council officers.  These are phishing scams. I would encourage you all to read this document developed by the Federal Trade Commission on how to avoid phishing scams. CSI Headquarters staff and EC officers will never e-mail you asking for money and all official e-mails related to chapters budgets or funds will come from a e-mail address. Additionally, just FYI...CSI International has in place protections to ensure that Society funds are properly accounted for and disbursed as appropriate. Your chapter is encouraged to adhere to CSI's Chapter Financial Policies as well. Do not respond to and feel free to delete e-mails requesting money or personal, financial information. Thank you for your attention to this matter and I hope you are all enjoying the summer.

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 Mission

Promoting 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.

Our Society

Founded at Ohio University in 1985, Chi Sigma Iota has over 130,000 members who have been initiated into the Society through more than 400 chapters that have been chartered throughout our history. We are growing by welcoming over 7,000 new members and chartering new chapters each year. Our members 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 made up of both professional and student members. Practicing counselors in all settings and specialties of counseling, as well as counselor educators and supervisors, are represented within CSI's professional members.

Our Chapters

CSI activities occur primarily through our active chapters located in counselor education programs in five regions in the United States and in counselor training programs beyond U.S. borders.

Chi Sigma Iota ...We are not just a line on your vita!
