Welcome to the official website of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated in the Illustrious State of Illinois!
Illinois has championed the cause of providing service and scholarship for African Americans and members of other minority ethnic groups since the sorority's inception in 1920.
As you view pages within this website, you will find chapters that are heavily involved in servicing the community, upholding the ideals of scholarship, sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood. Honoring its commitment service, the state of Illinois has formed alliances with various organizations such as the March of Dimes; American Cancer Society; American Lung Association; Urban League; United Nations; United Negro College Fund; and the National Pan Hellenic Council, Incorporated to name a few.
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, a community-conscious, action-oriented organization, has evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of our society. The state of Illinois worked tirelessly under the consolidated founding principles of Z-HOPE, (Zetas Helping Other People Excel, through the mind, body, and spirit).
We are especially proud of our programs geared toward educating individuals. Our goals revolve around identifying individuals in need of assistance and providing that assistance on a continual basis. Our mission encompasses raising the standard of excellence, through the mind, body, and spirit.
The Illinois State Executive Board and I are hopeful that you will find your visit to this website informative, invigorating, and thought-provoking. Please take the opportunity to provide feedback as we strive to improve this valuable information tool and the programs of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, in the state of Illinois.
