Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was founded at Howard University on January 16, 1920 in Miner Hall by Arizona Cleaver Stemons, Pearl Anna Neal, Myrtle Tyler Faithful, Viola Tyler Goings, and Fannie Pettie Watts. Howard University is a Historically Black University founded in 1867, whose mission is “Excellence in Truth and Service". Our Founders, the "Five Pearls" wanted to build a sorority focused on inclusion rather than exclusion. They developed our principles: Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood.
Alpha Chapter has continued to build upon the vision of the Founders by continuing its service to the community and commitment to scholarship. Members of the chapter have high academic achievement, are leaders on campus, and serve the community in many ways. Some of Alpha Chapter’s staple community initiatives include volunteering at Seabury Resources for Aging, March of Dimes, and several food banks around the city. In the past few years, the chapter has been awarded for their hard work by Howard University - winning Sorority of the Year three times. They were also awarded Service Organization of the Year for the 2018-2019 school year.
