Hear your call

Realize your true potential and give yourself every advantage for success. Zeta Tau Alpha membership provides a built-in support system to help you navigate college life and beyond. As a new member, you’ll learn about the elements of ZTA we all seek: greatness, understanding, purpose, sisterhood, nobility. Throughout your life, you’ll continue to grow in ZTA through leadership roles, service and mentoring other sisters.

In 1954, a time when women’s opportunities were limited, Zeta Tau Alpha established its Foundation to offer financial support to members pursuing higher education. The Foundation’s Scholarship Committee continues to assist Zetas in need, awarding scholarships based on leadership in ZTA, academic achievement, financial need, chapter involvement, and campus and community activities.

ZTA offers a variety of programming to prepare members to succeed in college and the world beyond. Some programs address immediate challenges such as hazing prevention, mental health, and social responsibility regarding problem drinking and prescription drug abuse. Other programs are dedicated to our sisters’ future success through career planning and membership enrichment topics.

When available on your campus, living in Zeta Tau Alpha housing can be a highlight of your college years. The cost for room and board is typically lower than living in a residence hall, and the benefits provide a unique experience for personal and social growth. The unique environment of ZTA housing provides positive opportunities and a welcoming home away from home.

The Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation fulfills the founding principles of our Fraternity through support for programs that are educational, philanthropic and leadership-oriented. While ZTA’s unifying national philanthropic cause is breast cancer education and awareness, each collegiate and alumnae chapter finds its own local niche with projects that produce long-lasting benefits to the community.

Zetas eagerly await the presentation of awards during Zeta Day, Convention and National Leadership Conference. We all celebrate as chapters and individuals are recognized for their achievements.

Links Member Enrichment Program

Leadership is a primary focus during a Zeta’s collegiate years. During sophomore year, Zetas complete the second link of ZTA’s Links Membership Enrichment Program, which is focused on leadership development. As future leaders of the chapter, these young sisters benefit from proficiency in topics ranging from conflict resolution, serving as role models and leading with integrity.

Convention and National Leadership Conference

Zeta Tau Alpha Conventions and National Leadership Conferences provide two or more representatives from each collegiate chapter the opportunity to attend workshops on leadership development, group dynamics, motivation, communication and more. All Zetas—both collegiate and alumnae—are encouraged to attend the biennial Convention.

Provincewide or Statewide Officer Training

Collegiate chapters are organized into Provinces and are overseen by regional directors, or Province Presidents, who serve as additional resources. Following chapter elections at the end of the fall semester, the Province President organizes an annual Provincewide or Statewide Officer Training for chapter leaders and advisors. These sessions provide an opportunity for collegians to network, share ideas and develop friendships with officers and advisors from other area chapters.

Consultants and Resources

A ZTA Leadership Consultant is a recent graduate who works full time on ZTA responsibilities throughout the school year as she visits with collegiate chapters. Her duties include providing guidance on officer education, leadership development, chapter organization and membership recruitment as well as assisting colonies and new chapters. In addition to consultants and national training events, ZTA provides leadership development resources for collegiate and alumnae officers.
