Zeta Phi Beta


Founded 1920,

Howard University

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated (ΖΦΒ) is an international, historically African American Greek-lettered sorority.


In 1920, five women from Howard University envisioned a sorority that would raise the consciousness of their people, encourage the highest standards of scholastic achievement, and foster a greater sense of unity among its members.


These women believed that sorority elitism and socializing overshadowed the real mission for progressive organizations. Since its founding Zeta Phi Beta has historically focused on addressing social causes.


Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c) and is the third largest predominately African-American sorority.
