The Atlantic East Conference is a Division III league formed of seven founding institutions including: Cabrini University, Gwynedd Mercy University, Immaculata University, Marymount University, Marywood University, Neumann University, and Wesley College. The conference was formed to foster athletic competition and cooperation among academically selective, private colleges located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. The geographic focus brings together some of the top colleges in the region, while still allowing for a strong conference of like-minded institutions, all of which integrate competitive athletics into the student-athlete’s university experience. The Atlantic East will initially sponsor and host championships for 20 sports within the NCAA Division III.
