Pi Sigma Alpha was founded in 1920 at the University of Texas to bring together students and faculty interested in the study of politics. The success of the honor society at the University of Texas allowed for other institutions to apply for chaptership.

Currently, there are over 460 chapters throughout the country. There is at least one college or university with a PSA chapter in every state, the District of Columbia and Guam.  Click here to visit the National Pi Sigma Alpha website.
