The chartering of this chapter provided a central location for the Northeastern Province of Kappa Alpha Psi.  Brothers immediately submerged themselves and the fraternity into the fabric of the community.  Since it's inception, New Brunswick Alumni has been working with the Rutgers University, the city of New Brunswick and its surrounding communities.  The chapter has partnered with numerous other organizations including the Civic League of Greater New Brunswick, The New Brunswick Chapter of the N.A.A.C.P. and Elijah's Promise Soup Ktchen.  Everywhere you turn you will find leaders in the community wearing the Kappa shield.   

 

The chapter has not only served the local community but also the fraternity on the provincial and national level.  In 1990, New Brunswick Alumni served as the host chapter for the  60th Annual Northeastern Province Council Meeting.  In 2006, the chapter hosted an inspirational Central Jersey Founders Day Celebration.  Brother Marshall B. Simmons, a 1971 initiate of the Alpha Iota chapter at Morgan State University in Baltimore Maryland, has served the chapter and the province as the Keeper of Exchequer.  His many years of service on the provincial and national level earned him the James M. Kidd Award, the highest honor awarded in the Northeastern Province.

 

Our greatest commitment has been to promoting education and leadership.  The chapter has provided scholarships annually to area graduating seniors for more than 20 years.  Scholarship packages have exceeded over 150,000.   Through our national Guide Right program, the chapter established the NBA Kappa Leadership League in 2004.  The KLL is a leadership training and mentoring program for young  black males from grades 7 to 12.  The success of the program earned the chapter the 2007  Jay Crosby Award for the Northeastern Province Guide Right Chapter of the Year (Alumni - Small Category).  The chapter earned the same recognition in 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014.  In addition the chapter earned the National Jay Crosby Award for Guide Right Chapter of the Year (Alumni - Small Category) during the Centennial Conclave in 2011 as well as in 2013.

"Oh noble Kappa Alpha Psi,

The pride of all our hearts.

True manliness fidelity,

Thou ever dost impart.

The source of our delights and joys,

And happiness thou art.

Oh noble Kappa Alpha Psi,

From thee we'll never part.

Oh noble Kappa Alpha Psi,

From thee we'll never part.
