Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was founded January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University. Our "Five Pearls" sought their vision of establishing a new organization based on Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood. Along with the support of our brother fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma, Incorporated, Zeta was conceived and has been prosperous ever since. Zeta Phi Beta and Phi Beta Sigma are the only constitutionally bound brother and sister organization nationally recognized today.
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority is on the move and continues to uphold its principles through various community efforts. Zeta structures its community service around its Seven Point Plan of Action which addresses issues such as education, health and human services, leadership, and economic development. Recently, Zeta Phi Beta took on The Human Genome Project as yet another conscious effort to educate and inform our community. Today Zeta consists of more than 600 chapters, including chapters in the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, and West Africa. Zeta Phi Beta was the first Greek letter sorority established in Africa in 1948.
The Omicron Nu chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. at UWG was originally chartered in May 1987. These African American women support our national project by providing services at the Stork's Nesst Blitz which provides prenatal care to underprivileged mothers. Omicron Nu continues to enhance our "Five Pearls" vision through community service and promoting greek unity and sisterly love.
