Conference Carolinas (known as CC) is a conference participating in the NCAA's Division II.
CC was founded in 1930 as the North State Intercollegiate Conference by seven North Carolina schools. During its first years, it was known informally as the Old North State Conference. When the conference added the South Carolina school Newberry as its first out-of-state member in 1961, it changed its name to the Carolinas Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (CIAC), informally the Carolinas Conference. The next name change, to Carolinas–Virginia Athletic Conference (CVAC), came with the arrival of Longwood, the league's first member in Virginia, in 1995. The current name of Conference Carolinas was adopted in 2007.
Converse, traditionally a women's college, does not currently field men's sports. Its residential undergraduate program is all-female, with coeducational graduate, summer, and online programs. In 2021–22, the school will become fully coeducational, changing its name to Converse University, and also begin fielding men's sports teams, including basketball.
