21 Conferences Strong

The NAIA is defined by the strength of its members, organized into 21 conferences. While each conference has its own personality and set of governing tenets, they share core values.

Our conferences value athletic competition to develop the character of our student-athletes, school spirit and to live the NAIA core values (respect, responsibility, integrity, servant leadership, and sportsmanship) on a daily basis.

The conferences provide the opportunity for each institution to be influential, provide the best educational experience and develop life skills through character-driven athletics.
