A conference with nine member institutions: University at Albany, Binghamton University, Boston University, University of Hartford, University of Maine, University of New Hampshire, Northeastern University, Stony Brook University and University of Vermont. To see how far America East has progressed, consider the conference was established in 1979 as the ECAC North. The conference at that time consisted of 10 institutions and sponsored league competition only in mens basketball, with the champion having an automatic bid to the NCAA Championship. Mens basketball remained the lone league sport until the 1988-89 academic year. At that time, the Board of Directors made a new commitment to the Conference, establishing a conference office, hiring a full-time commissioner, and embarking on a building program which, within a few short years, sponsored championship competition in 21 different sports for men and women.
Sponsors 21 sports with championships for Boston University, University of Delaware, Drexel University, University of Hartford, Hofstra University, University of Maine, University of New Hampshire, Northeastern University, Towson University, and the University of Vermont.
