The Northeast Conference (NEC) is a college athletic conference whose schools are members of the NCAA. The NCAA designates the Northeast Conference to the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision for Division I Men's Football (formerly Division I-AA) and to Division I Sports for all other sports.

Founded in 1981 as the ECAC-Metro Conference, member schools changed the conference name beginning in 1989. Participating schools come from the northeastern United States.

The Northeast Conference has expanded seven times since 1981. The expansions were in 1985, 1989, 1992, 1997, 1998, 1999, and 2008. The additions from the original charter members were Monmouth, Mount Saint Mary's, Central Connecticut State, Quinnipiac, Sacred Heart and Bryant.

The Northeast Conference has a total of twelve members in 22 championship sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s bowling, men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. Men's lacrosse will become the league’s 23rd sport by the 2011 season. There are also nine affiliate members that compete in football, field hockey, and women's bowling. The Northeast Conference's ranks increased to 12 in 2008 with the addition of Bryant University. Although Bryant is already in the conference it will not be a core member, a member with voting rights, until the 2012 season.


There are a total of twenty institutions that compete in the Northeast Conference twelve full-time member schools and nine affiliate member schools:
