The Perfect Psychology Family

On September 4, 2019, Psi Chi celebrated its’ 90th Anniversary at the founding place of Yale University. Many people gathered in the Sterling Library of Yale to commemorate this momentous occasion. Dr. Mike Colbert, who serves as the Camden County College Chairperson of Psychology and Psi Beta’s National Council Eastern Region Vice-President, presented for Psi Beta (National Honor Society in Psychology for Community Colleges) and Psi Alpha (National Honor Society in Psychology for High School Student). Among the other noted speakers was Joan Hubbard Cousins, who is the daughter of the legendary Ruth Hubbard Cousins, Executive Director of Psi Chi from 1958-1991.  As a child in 1959, Joan helped her single mother to operate the new Psi Chi office in Washington DC. Ruth Cousins then inspired the founding of Psi Beta by convincing her other daughter, Carol Tracy, to create the society on November 5, 1981. Fitting as it be, Psi Beta’s long-standing Executive Director, Jerry Rudmann, founded Psi Alpha in 2018. This trifecta now makes the ‘Perfect Psychology Family’.
