The History of the Central Intercollegiate
Athletic Association

The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) was founded in 1912 as the Colored Intercollegiate Athletic Association and is the oldest African-American athletic conference in the nation. Although the membership has changed since 1912, the CIAA consists of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) spanning the east coast from Pennsylvania to North Carolina. The membership: Bowie State University, Chowan University, Fayetteville State University, Johnson C. Smith University, Elizabeth City State University, Lincoln University of Pennsylvania, Livingstone College, Saint Augustine's College, Shaw University, Virginia State University, Virginia Union University, and Winston-Salem State University is comprised of both private and public colleges and universities with enrollments ranging from 750 - 7,000 students. Currently, eighty percent of CIAA alumni reside in District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia.

Food Lion has been an Official Corporate Partner of the CIAA for over 19 years. Through this relationship, Food Lion has provided scholarships to deserving students at historically black colleges and universities. Food Lion is proud to be the title sponsor of the Food Lion CIAA Women’s Basketball Tournament. Each year, Food Lion builds on this partnership and long-standing relationship with the CIAA Tournament.

The presence of the CIAA as a premiere member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II, continues to expand throughout the country. Expansion of television broadcasts has resulted in nationwide coverage of football and basketball contests, as well as the annual CIAA Basketball Tournament. Increasing competitiveness in other sports is also leading to recognition of CIAA member schools as athletic powerhouses. The reputation, in conjunction with the academic success of its athletes, is a proud legacy for the CIAA.
