NCCU Becomes 13th MEAC Member Institution

Sept. 10, 2009

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., September 10, 2009 - The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) announced today that North Carolina Central University will join the conference as its 13th member, as voted on by the conference's Council of Chief Executive Officers (CCEOs), effective July 1, 2010.

A press conference is set for noon today at the McLendon-McDougald Gymnasium on the campus of NCCU in Durham, N.C.

"I am elated to have such an outstanding academic institution as North Carolina Central to return to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference," said MEAC Commissioner Dennis E. Thomas. "I would like to commend Chancellor Nelms, Dr. Wicker-McCree, and the entire NCCU family for all their continued hard work as they make the transition from Division II to Division I."

Commissioner Thomas added, "The addition of NCCU keeps us in compliance with our long range strategic plan of adding up to 14 members. NCCU is a perfect fit for the MEAC."

NCCU is in the third year of its reclassification from NCAA Division II to Division I.
