eta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was founded January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. The five illustrious Founders of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Arizona Clever Stemons, Myrtle Tyler Faithful, Viola Tyler Goings, Fannie Pettie Watts, and Pearl Anna Neal dared to depart from the traditional coalitions for Black women and sought to establish a new organization.

 

Their vision was to encourage the highest standards of scholarship through scientific, literary, cultural and educational programs; promote volunteerism on college campuses and in the community; foster sisterhood; and exemplify Finer Womanhood.

These ideals are reflected in the sorority’s national programs for which its members and auxiliary groups provide significant volunteer service, financial capital, and professional talent to educate the public, assist youth, enrich community outreach programs, fund scholarships, support organized charities and promote legislation for civic and social change.

 

​Headquartered in Washington, D.C., Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has over 800 chapters in the continental United States, the Bahamas, Germany Japan, Korea and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Sorority has a diverse membership of college-educated women representing various disciplines, industries and professions.
