E&H Accepted into NCAA Division II Provisional Membership

In July 2021, Emory & Henry was officially accepted as a provisional member of Division II Athletics, capping a 48-year run as a charter member of Division III. Emory & Henry will join the South Atlantic Conference (SAC) for the 2022-23 academic year after accepting a membership invitation to join the league last November.

Emory & Henry began the first of three provisional years in August. If all benchmarks are met, the College would be eligible for full membership in August of 2024. The impact of the move to Division II and other strategic initiatives have helped produce record enrollment for the fall 2021 semester.

The College will participate in 19 of the SAC’s championship sports, including the conference’s combined men’s wrestling championship with Conference Carolinas. “Reclassification has been a high priority within our strategic plan as we prepare for the future of higher education,” said President John Wells.
