Administrative Note

Eastern Michigan University's Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is an integral part of the highest education experience and is operated in harmony with the University's educational objectives. They are committed to the intellectual, cultural, physical and social development of all student-athletes attending the University.

Athletics have had a long history at Eastern Michigan University. In 1891, the initial season of men's sports started with football followed by baseball in 1893, basketball in 1897, track in 1898, cross country in 1911, gymnastics in 1960, golf in 1962, swimming 1964, tennis in 1969, and finally Soccer in 1980. In 1976, the initial season of women's sports started with basketball, followed by volleyball, cross country, track, tennis, gymnastics, swimming, and field hockey in the same year. Softball's initial season was in 1981, soccer in 1995 and golf in 1996.

In 1892, the Michigan State Normal College (MSNC) joined Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, and in 1920 joined the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association(MIAA). In 1927, MSNC left the MIAA and joined the Michigan Collegiate Conference and in 1950 joined the Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. In 1960, the athletic season was referred to as the year of the Huron with four of the eleven athletic teams winning national championships and two others were runner-ups to a national title. In 1962, MSNC, now Eastern Michigan University (EMU), left IIAC and joined the Presidents Athletic Conference, and in 1971, EMU was admitted into the Mid-American Conference (MAC). Between the years of 1970 and 1975, for the second consecutive year, they captured league championships in cross country, as well as baseball, placed second in track, and third in swimming. EMU is also affiliated as NCAA Division-1 members, maintaining its status since 1976.

EMU fields more athletic teams than any other MAC school, and in the 2006-2007 season won 8 MAC championships and received three first-team Academic All-Americans.
