The Northeast Ten Conference is an intercollegiate athletic conference affiliated with the NCAA’s Division II. Member institutions are located in the northeastern United Statesmarker in the states of Connecticutmarker, Massachusettsmarker, New Hampshiremarker, New Yorkmarker, and Vermontmarker.

The “Northeast-10” name came about when Saint Michael's College and Quinnipiac Collegemarker joined the league in 1987, and the conference remained stable until 1995 when Springfield College left for Division III. The league stayed at ten members as Le Moyne College joined the league in 1996 from the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) and briefly expanded to eleven when Pace University joined in 1998 from the New York Collegiate Athletic Conference (NYCAC). Quinnipiac moved to the Division I Northeast Conference (NEC) to again return the membership to ten, until the last major expansion took place prior to 2000 when five new schools joined the fold. Franklin Pierce Collegemarker, Southern New Hampshire Universitymarker (formerly New Hampshire College), the University of Massachusetts Lowellmarker and Southern Connecticut State Universitymarker were joined by The College of Saint Rosemarker giving the NE-10 15 members. In 2007, Bryant Universitymarker announced it would begin the five-year process that would make them a full Division I member by 2012; at the same time the NE-10 announced that it had given a bid to University of New Havenmarker and they had accepted. In December 2007 Adelphi Universitymarker announced it had joined the league and would begin play in 2009-10. To start the 2008-2009 academic year the NE-10 still has its 15 members and will expand to 16 in 2009-10.

With that major expansion, the NE-10 now stands as the second largest NCAA Division II conference in the nation. The strength in numbers was the guiding force in the addition and strengthening of a number of championship sports the league now offers.

Since the addition of those five institutions, the league has added football, indoor track and field, and outdoor track and field as championship sports. While the expansion has added championships in certain sports, it has also increased the championship opportunities for countless student-athletes with the expansion of postseason tournaments for sports such as field hockey, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s lacrosse and baseball.

The expansion continued in 2003-04 as the conference added another three championships to its diverse menu - men’s swimming and diving, women’s swimming and diving, and men’s ice hockey - the only Division II ice hockey conference in the nation. The conference also continued to expand in the classroom. In 2002-03 the NE-10 honored a record number of scholar athletes to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. The creation of the Northeast-10 Academic Achievement Award also continues to grow in recognition and prestige.

David Brunk, the first full-time commissioner in league history, announced in April he was resigning July 1, 2007 to take over the Peach Belt Conference. Brunk had been commissioner since 1998. Julie Ruppert became the next full-time commissioner in June 2008.
