Zeta Phi Beta was founded January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. as the sister organization to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. 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 nonprofit organization, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority is incorporated in Washington, DC and in the state of Illinois.
The Sorority was the first Greek-letter organization to charter a chapter in Africa; to form adult and youth auxiliary groups, the Amicae, Archonettes, Amicettes, and Pearlettes; and to be constitutionally bound to a brother group, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated. Since its inception, the Sorority has expanded to encompass more than 500 graduate and collegiate chapters. These chapters are located throughout the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, the Bahamas ,Eastern Caribbean Islands, West Africa, and Germany and are organized into Nine Regions.
Zeta's national and local programs include endowment of its National Education Foundation, community outreach services, and support of multiple affiliate organizations. Zeta chapters and auxiliary groups have given untotaled hours of voluntary service to educate the public, assist youth, provide scholarships, support organized charities and promote legislation for social and civic change.
