NCAC Mission Statement

The purpose of this conference is to provide for athletic competition among institutions that share similar academic aspirations and mutual trust. Recognizing the important contribution that such competition can make to the total educational experience, its members will strive for athletic excellence, for fair and equal opportunities for men and women, and for the development of a broad-based program. Because its members are bound together by their commitment to the primacy of the academic enterprise and by a conviction that athletics should be fully integrated into the educational program of each college, conference leadership is invested in the presidents of the member institutions.
