History

The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education organized the conference in 1951 to promote competition in men's sports amongst the system's 14 universities. In 1977, following growing interest, the conference was reorganized to offer women's sports as well. Then in 1980, in order to promote increased competition, the entire conference was reclassified as Division II within the NCAA.[1]

The conference announced on June 18, 2007, that it had invited three private universities—Gannon University and Mercyhurst College of Erie, Pennsylvania and C.W. Post of Brookville, New York—to join the conference.[2] On June 27, Gannon and Mercyhurst held a joint press conference to announce their acceptance into the PSAC, effective July 1, 2008.[3] The following day it was announced that C.W. Post would also join the conference as an associate member in football and field hockey.[4]
