It is a unique Conference that generates the best and most inspiring athletes with great national media and corporate exposure. It has also followed the destinies of black colleges and universities since 1912, making it the oldest African American league in the country.

CIAA is the acronym for the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, which has members in four states and currently 12 member schools in NCAA Division II. CIAA 2017 has some excitingly awaited annual events in college sports as well as socials, celebrations and shows for registered or paying audiences.

It left is old Hampton Virginia home and relocated Charlotte, NC in 2015 and has new major corporate support. North Carolina is where 8 of league campuses are, and they officially participate in eight sports for men and an equal eight sports for women.
