February 22, 2016

The Chi Sigma Iota (CSI) organization describes its activities as encouraging members to pursue their passions as a result of upholding the goals of the society. The LSU Shreveport chapter has been named Lambda Sigma Upsilon.

The decision to form a chapter of CSI is noteworthy for LSUS in that the action represents a commitment on behalf of the psychology department and CSI to work cooperatively to promote excellence in the profession of counseling among students, faculty, and alumni.

Dr. Hsin-ya Tang, assistant professor of counseling at LSUS and chapter faculty advisor, said CSI has initiated over 85,000 professionals and professionals-in-training worldwide, and currently has over 14,000 active members. As a result, members will be recognized by and affiliated with one of the largest counseling organizations in the world with its sole mission to recognize and promote excellence in the profession of counseling.

"Our application for Lambda Sigma Upsilon Chapter of CSI was just approved and all the counseling master's students, alumni, and faculty are excited about this great news," Tang said. "Joining the chapter distinguishes our Pilots as outstanding counseling students whose accomplishments are consistent with the mission of CSI international and of the Lambda Sigma Upsilon Chapter."

The chapter is currently recruiting counseling master's students, alumni, and faculty who are professional counselors and counselor educators across the country so that they may participate in the first initiation ceremony that will take place in April of this year.

CSI is an academic and professional counseling honor society open to graduate students who have completed at least nine credit hours and have a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
