Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was founded on January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, DC as the sister organization to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. Five women chose not to embrace the tenets of established black sororities and chartered Zeta Phi Beta Sorority to encourage the highest standards of scholarship through scientific, literary, cultural and educational programs; promote service projects on college campuses and in the community; foster sisterhood; and exemplify the ideal of Finer Womanhood. A private non-profit organization, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority is incorporated in Washington, DC, in the state of Illinois and in Goldsboro, NC.
Since its inception, the sorority has chronicled a number of “firsts” among the established sororities. In addition to being the only organization constitutionally bound to a fraternity, the sorority was the first to charter international chapters, those in Africa and Germany; to form adult and youth auxiliary groups, the Amicae, Archonettes, Amicettes, and Pearlettes; and to organize its internal affairs within a central, national office administered by a paid staff.
Zeta Phi Beta’s purpose is to foster the ideals of service, charity, scholarship, civic and cultural endeavors, sisterhood and Finer Womanhood. These ideas are reflected in the sorority’s national programs for which its members and auxiliary groups provide countless hours of volunteer services to staff, community outreach programs, fund scholarships, support organized charities and promote legislation for social and civic change.
SRZ has socials for Sorors, reclaimees, and interested parties. If interested in participating with and/or joining the chapter, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
