About the Book

The New England Small College Athletic Conference has won glowing appraisals in the sporting press since its founding in 1971. Established to strengthen intercollegiate sports in harmony with the high academic standards of its members—11 prestigious liberal arts colleges—the NESCAC is committed to equity and inclusion in athletic programs, and to providing only need-based financial aid. The conference’s reputation attracts many of the most gifted student athletes in the U.S. Drawing extensively on campus archives, media reports and interviews, this book compares the NESCAC’s lofty strategy to reality, with a focus on recruiting, admissions, financial aid and diversity goals.
