Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Upsilon Theta Zeta (UTZ) was chartered in Lexington, KY., on April 23, 2005 at the Great Lakes Regional Conference. There were 8 women that were instrumental in the foundation and growth of UTZ. This group of women saw a need for community involvement within the city and outskirts of Redford, MI. While upholding the principles of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., they set out to establish a graduate chapter with their combined collegiate skill-sets, knowledge and experience.
