About Psi Iota Xi
(pronounced sigh iota zi)
In 1897, Psi Iota Xi was founded by the joining together of women to make a difference in the lives of individuals one community at a time. The original intent was to bring more diverse cultural experiences to their communities. Music and art were introduced to these towns with the funds that the women raised. As the organization grew, literature and literacy became an added focus. Now the sphere of interest has grown to include helping those with speech and hearing difficulties.
Psi Iota Xi is a network of friends dedicated to helping others with time, money and love and meeting needs whether cultural, educational, social, or financial. Every chapter is different since every community’s needs are different. Psi Iota Xi endeavors to create a circle of influence and dedication so that it might meet the diverse needs of individuals, families, communities, and in expanding areas of our states and nation.
“Each member of Psi Iota Xi is a part of the whole, and the whole is dependent on the contribution of each person privileged to wear the Psi Iota Xi pin.”
