Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated

Culture for Service, and Service for Humanity

About Us

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., on January 9, 1914, by three young African-American male students. The Founders, Honorable A. Langston Taylor, Honorable Leonard F. Morse, and Honorable Charles I. Brown, wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would truly exemplify the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship, and service.

The Founders deeply wished to create an organization that viewed itself as "a part of" the general community rather than "apart from" the general community. They believed that each potential member should be judged by his own merits, rather than his family background or affluence…without regard to race, nationality, skin tone or texture of hair. They desired for their fraternity to exist as part of an even greater brotherhood which would be devoted to the "inclusive we" rather than the "exclusive we".

Rho Tau Chapter

The Rho Tau Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated was charted on March 25, 1989, on the campus of George Mason University by seven outstanding men who saw a need for Phi Beta Sigma on this campus.

Since its inception, the Rho Tau Chapter has been a beacon of light, a leader in community service and philanthropy, and an advocate for communities of color.

Thanks to our seven charter members, and their vision, we have been active in our community for over 30 years
