Zeta Amicae

of Cambridge

Zeta Amicae History

Since 1940, chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated realized the importance and the valuable contributions of women who chose a different educational path than college. Though many women affiliated with Zeta chapters served in organized auxiliaries, their place in the sisterhood was made official when National President Lullelia Harrison included in her report to the 1948 Boule a recommendation that chapters be allowed to organize auxiliaries known as Zeta “Amicae” (Friends of Zeta).

The Amicae auxiliary provides an opportunity for women to be affiliated with Zeta and assist the sorority with providing positive, proactive, and far-reaching community service, both nationally and internationally. Today, Amicae auxiliaries are in all eight regions of Zeta Phi Beta and have continued to render invaluable community service and thousands of dollars helping Zeta extend their outreach to the communities where they live and serve.

Zeta values our Amicae and embraces the concept that all women, no matter their educational level, have the ability to reach their full potential in all areas of their lives to create and achieve unlimited opportunities.
