The Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC) is an NCAA Division III collegiate athletic conference in the Mid-Atlantic United States. There are currently twelve full member institutions as of 2017. The conference's membership, as with most Middle Atlantic conferences, has been shaken up as a result of the formation of the Landmark Conference and its ensuing domino effect. The conference, founded in 1992 as the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference, changed its name in 2008.[1]

The CSAC is set to experience another shakeup in 2018 with the announced departure of five members that will join with two other institutions to form a new Division III conference[2][3] to be known as the Atlantic East Conference.[4] At the same time, the CSAC will add two new members.[5]
