Unified, Mobilized, Zetarized

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.'s Core Values


Zeta Phi Beta was founded on the principle of Scholarship to award scholarships, service awards and grants to worthy young women in pursuit of higher education.


As a community-conscious, action-oriented organization, Zeta cannot and will not wait for someone else to solve our problems. Through our GET ENGAGED™ social action initiative, we will mobilize the communities we serve through education, service and advocacy.


"There is a Zeta in every girl regardless of race, creed or color, who has high standards and principles, a good scholarly average, and an active interest in all things that she undertakes to accomplish". ~Founder Viola Tyler
