As early as 1940, graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. began to realize the importance of the prestige, good will, and cooperation of women who for various reasons were not members of any Greek-lettered organization. In 1948 Zeta graduate chapters were allowed to organize auxiliaries that would be known as Zeta Amicae. These groups render valuable services to the sorority and their respective communities. These groups are located in areas where there are active graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
