Founded on the campus of Howard University on January 16, 1920, our Sisterhood is comprised of diverse, professional women who have earned their baccalaureate degree and maintain a firm dedication to upholding the principles of Scholarship, Service, Finer Womanhood and Sisterhood throughout their college campuses and communities.
Membership is granted by invitation only. We encourage women with high ethical, moral, cultural standards to attend the public events that are hosted by our local chapters to get acquainted with the members and local programming.
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated does not tolerate hazing in any form.
Finer Women Don’t Haze
HERE IS WHAT WE KNOW:
- 1.5 million high school students are hazed each year
- 92% will not report being hazed
- 10% of college students will admit to being hazed
- 36% of college students will not report hazing
- 46% of college students are aware of hazing but will remain silent
There are no illusions or myths that any program, such as “Finer Women Don’t Haze” Campaign (FWDH), strategy, slogan, current laws, or jargon is going to dramatically or significantly change the culture of hazing overnight or instantly. However, we must begin somewhere and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated must offer its voice in this discourse by………
- recognizing that hazing is real and co-exists with our policies and procedures against hazing
- bringing awareness and attention to an issue that is kept underground, in secret, hidden, and unspoken
- promoting open dialogue and discussion in the Greek-letter community, campuses, local schools, churches, community-wide organizations, etc. on the issue of hazing
- networking with other Greek-letter fraternities/sororities, national, state, and local community organizations by providing programs in elementary, middle, and high schools that addresses
- contacting lawmakers at the local, state, and federal levels to strengthen current laws and pass
