The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference
« on: June 30, 2021, 02:19:46 PM »
In 1969, a group, whose members were long associated with interscholastic athletics, met in Durham, North Carolina with the purpose of discussing the organization of a new conference. After the formulation of a committee, and their research reported, seven institutions:

Delaware State University
Howard University
University of Maryland Eastern Shore
Morgan State University
North Carolina A&T State University
North Carolina Central University
South Carolina State College

agreed to become the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

The conference's main goals were to establish and supervise an intercollegiate athletic program among a group of educational institutions that shared the same academic standards and philosophy of co-curricular activities and seek status as a Division I conference for all of its sports.

The conference was confirmed in 1970, and had its first season of competition in football in 1971.

It just the last day of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University's membership in the MEAC.

I thought it deserved some acknowledgement.
