Brother Kinloch’s 25th Administration mission is to build on the legacy of past Northern Province administrations by strengthening the BASE of Brotherhood, Achievement, Service, and Engagement:

- (2) Enhance the relationship between Undergraduates and Alumni;
- (3) Expand the Northern Province service initiatives in the community and to its membership;
- (4) Streamline Provincial communications
Our Vision is to be the benchmark example of an active and growing Province of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. We will do this by focusing on the mission to build on the legacy of past Northern Province administrations by strengthening the BASE of Brotherhood, Achievement, Service, and Engagement: We have a firm foundation built by prior administrations who laid the groundwork for us today. We pledge to continue that strong tradition of integrity, honesty, trust and respect in everything we do. The Plan is to leverage their knowledge, their resources and skills to strengthen our base.
