Chi Sigma Iota at Adams State

What is Chi Sigma Iota?

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 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.


Chi Sigma Iota, the International Counseling Academic and Professional honor Society, was established January 1, 1985 and evolved as a consequence of the maturity of the counseling profession. While the scope of the Society is international, its focus is upon the personal and professional development of its individual members. CSI is committed to upholding the high standards of its members and provides a link between students, educators, practitioners, and administrators in various counseling settings. The chapters provide a forum for interaction, sharing of concerns, discussion of issues, and support for common interests. Many chapters schedule meetings and solicit speakers on a variety of topics relevant to counselors, serving as a resources for continuing education. Chapters have also conducted service activities and have organized social gatherings to facilitate interactions between members.
