On March 15, 1963 the presidents from Abilene Christian College, Arkansas State College, Arlington State College, Lamar State College of Technology and Trinity University met at the Baker Hotel in Dallas and established the expanding athletics organization known as the Southland Conference. Membership has now grown to more than twice its original number, with an all-time high membership of 11 institutions. Lamar University, one of the original five members before withdrawing in 1987, rejoined the Conference July 1, 1998. Lamar's reinstatement came one year after Southeastern Louisiana University brought the Texas-Louisiana-based Conference enrollment to 10 universities.
The Southland Conference officially announced that it will add Houston Baptist University as a member. The Huskies' membership becomes official on July 1, 2013. HBU officials said that they will start a football program that may play as soon as 2013 and will play in the Southland in 2014.
