The league features both public and private institutions, committed to fielding broad-based NCAA Division I athletics programs that develop physical fitness, academic development, and moral character in its student-athletes. Best known for its men's basketball success, the Horizon League offers a total of 18 championships (nine each for men and women). The League enjoys NCAA automatic qualification in baseball, men's basketball, women's basketball, men's golf, men's soccer, women's soccer, softball, women's tennis and women's volleyball.
