Psi Chi's symbol is based on the Greek letters psi and chi, which have been used for decades in the Psi Chi induction ritual to express the Greek words psyche and cheires, which in turn symbolize mind (scholarship and the enrichment of the mind) and hands (fellowship and cooperation in research).

The Psi Chi seal places the symbols at the center of a circle, indicating that scholarship and fellowship are at the center of Psi Chi's mission. In addition to the Greek words and its founding date, the symbols are now wrapped onto a globe to represent the society’s new emphasis on international expansion. The outer band and circles encompassing the globe represent the unified goals and mission of the society: to excel in scholarship and advance psychology.
