Organization Facts

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated was founded on January 16, 1920.  Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. began as an idea conceived by five female students at Howard University in Washington D.C.: Arizona Cleaver-Stemons, Pearl Anna Neal, Myrtle Tyler Faithful, Viola Tyler Goings, and Fannie Pettie Watts.  These five women dared to depart from the traditional coalitions for black women and sought to establish a new organization predicated on the precepts of Service, Scholarship, Sisterly Love, and Finer Womanhood.  It was the ideal of the Founders that the Sorority would reach college women in all parts of the country who were sorority minded and desired to follow the founding principles of this organization.  Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. is the sister organization to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc.

Chapter Facts

It was the dream of Basileus Josetta Arnold, of the Beta Alpha Zeta Chapter, and Soror Kalissa Vincent, a UNF graduate, to create a new chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. at the University of North Florida.  Hence, the Gamma Sigma Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. was chartered on November 22, 2003 at the Annual Regional Conference in Orlando, Florida.  The chartering members of the Gamma Sigma Chapter were Sorors Nicole Brown, Kendra Hammond, Rolanda Powell, Tonya Sumling, and Deborah Williams. 

The University of North Florida chapter of Zeta Phi Beta also works closely with a number of projects.  These include ZHope, ZOL, Storks Nest, and ZNEF.
