Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. was founded on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C, on January 16, 1920 by five pearls: Arizona Cleaver, Fannie Pettie, Myrtle Tyler, Viola Tyler, and Pearl Neal. With over 125,000 members of college educated, dynamic, community service driven, diverse, and professional women, we were the First Greek letter organization to charter a chapter in Africa and have chapters in the USA, Europe, Asia and The Caribbean. Zeta Phi Beta is committed to providing SERVICE, instilling FINER WOMANHOOD, embracing SCHOLARSHIP, and setting standards for SISTERLY LOVE. This belief has sustained and encouraged Zetas around the world to hold fast to the ideals initiated and developed by its earliest members. In doing so Zetas still push forward as a community service based organization combining with the March of Dimes and Stork’s Nest. Xi Chapter was reactivated December 6th, 2010. This chapter is a city chapter that covers schools in the metro Detroit area without undergraduate chapters. Fairly new but known on a regional level with awards after only being active for 6 months, and nationally known as well. Locally our organization is an invitational only based looking for community driven, in pursuit of a bachelor degree, with high standards, positivity, creativity and driven by hard work, diverse women. *Founder Viola Tyler was oft quoted to say "[In the ideal collegiate situation] there is a Zeta in a 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."
