                   NORTH COAST ATHLETIC CONFERENCE
Founded in 1983, the North Coast Athletic Conference is dedicated to
fostering a complementary relationship between intercollegiate athletics                ALLEGHENY COLLEGE
and the pursuit of academic excellence. Consisting of 10 academically
selective colleges and universities in Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania,
                                                                                        Meadville, PA
the NCAC believes that high-level athletic programs need not be sacri-
ficed in order to meet rigid academic standards.

Significantly, all 10 NCAC institutions have been granted chapters of                   DENISON UNIVERSITY

ties. Only 270 of the more than 3,000 four-year institutions in the United
States have been so honored.

The goals of the conference express the best aspirations of American
amateur athletics. The NCAC brings together a group of institutions                     EARLHAM COLLEGE
which share a common allegiance to academic quality and to the conduct                  Richmond, IN
of athletics so as to support the educational purpose. Intercollegiate
athletics can and should enhance the experience of students during their
college years. This type of academic and athletic commitment has been
led by the 10 school presidents, who take an active role in the gover-
nance of the conference.
                                                                                        HIRAM COLLEGE

A member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division
III, the NCAC features championship competition in 22 sports — 11 for
men and 11 for women. The 11 women’s sports are the most offered by
any Division III conference, and the equality in number and emphasis                    KENYON COLLEGE
between men’s and women’s athletics is just one of the elements that sets
                                                                                        Gambier, OH

Fourty-five teams from all 22 North Coast sports and all 10 NCAC
schools were represented in NCAA post-season competition during the
2007-08 academic year. The NCAC added two Division III champion-                        OBERLIN COLLEGE

accumulated 57 national champinships since its inception in 1984-85. In
the past academic year, 184 NCAA All-America or ESPN The Maga-
zine/CoSida Academic All-America certificates were distributed to
student-athletes from North Coast schools.
                                                                                        OHIO WESLEYAN
The NCAC’s commitment to equity, its broad base of athletic programs,                   UNIVERSITY
and an unwavering insistence on excellence in academics has served as                   Delaware, OH
a model for conferences throughout the country. The North Coast has
shown not only that these ideals can coexist, but that they can flourish.
The NCAC continues as a pace-setter into the 21st century.
