TESTIMONIALS

Bigger & Better Business

Bigger and Better Business became the first national program of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. It was first introduced to the fraternity at the Tenth Anniversary Conclave held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in December 1924. When Bigger and Better Business was adopted as a national program, special emphasis was placed on work with negro businesses. The main purpose at the time was to encourage negro business to improve their business acumen, efficiency and service to the public in order to favorably compete with other businesses.

EDUCATION

The basis of the Education program lies in the traditional emphasis that the Fraternity places on education. During the 1945 Conclave in St. Louis, Missouri, the Fraternity underwent a constitution restructuring which led to the birth of education as an international program. The program focuses on programming and services to alumni and collegiate in the Fraternity. Programs such as scholarships, lectures, college fairs, mentoring and tutoring enhance this program on local, regional and national levels.

SOCIAL ACTION

Formulated in 1934, the Social Action program was conceived by Bro. Elmo M. Anderson to focus on improving the general well being of minority groups.
