The Little East Conference (LEC) is a Division-III conference. The member institutions are located in the northeastern U.S. states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.

The Little East Conference officially began on April 28, 1986 as a playing conference for men's and women's basketball among six New England institutions: Eastern Connecticut State University, Plymouth State University (formerly Plymouth State College), Rhode Island College, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth (formerly Southeastern Massachusetts University), the University of Massachusetts Boston and the University of Southern Maine. The number of participating institutions rose to seven with the addition of Western Connecticut State University in 1993-94 and then to eight for the 1997-98 year as Keene State College joined.

Since the inception of the Little East Conference, baseball has been the conference's most recognizable sport. Two conference teams, Eastern Connecticut State University and the University of Southern Maine have won a combined six NCAA Division-III National Titles.
