The sorority is founded on the principles of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood (Sisterly Love), and Finer Womanhood. The founders believed that sorority elitism and socializing should not overshadow the real mission for progressive organizations – to address societal mores, ills, poverty, and health concerns of the day. The Nu Omicron Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta, Sorority, Inc. has been carrying out the principles of Zeta Phi Beta and serving the San Fernando Valley for more than thirty years.
