Nu Rho Psi

About Us

Nu Rho Psi - Alpha in Arizona is the University of Arizona’s chapter of the only national honor society in Neuroscience. The society, founded in 2006 by the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience, has bloomed into a nation-wide organization dedicated to providing recognition to and support for high-achieving neuroscience students in academic institutions as they work towards advancing the field of neuroscience. High standards of membership in Nu Rho Psi at the UA address students’ academic and individual excellence, and their dedication to neuroscience. The diversity of backgrounds of our members fosters intellectual and academic growth as we strive to tackle challenges faced by the ever-growing field of neuroscience through seminars, laboratory research, and discussion. Our chapter members enjoy scholarly camaraderie and also are dedicated to our local community, engaging in a variety of neuroscience-related service activities throughout Tucson.

Each year, National Nu Rho Psi designates a theme to direct the educational and outreach initiatives for the chapters. UA’s Nu Rho Psi chapter is excited to have played an influential role in the selection of this year’s theme of “Stress and Anxiety.”

Twice each year, we issue a call to all academically eligible NSCS students to consider applying for membership in the chapter.

Chapter Officers for 2017-18: Briggs Carhart (President), Colin Potter (Vice-President), Zoey Petitt (Secretary), Rohin Singh (Treasurer)

Chapter Advisor: Dr. Leslie Tolbert, PhD, Regents’ Professor in Neuroscience
