The University Athletic Association (UAA) is an American athletic conference that competes in the National Collegiate Athletic Association's (NCAA) Division III. Member teams are located in Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ohio, and New York.
The UAA, a NCAA Division III Conference, is the only NCAA conference to have all of its member institutions affiliated with the Association of American Universities, a collection of 60 Ph.D granting research institutions in the United States. UAA members are ranked in the top 40 of national research universities by U.S. News & World Report's Best Colleges Rankings. Historically, the division was colloquially called the "egghead eight." (The name "nerdy nine" was also used when Johns Hopkins was a member.)
