The Northwest Conference is a Division III conference made of nine private colleges and universities situated throughout Oregon and Washington.

Formed in 1926, the conference is one of the oldest athletic alliances in the western United States. Charter members included Willamette, Pacific, Whitman, the College of Puget Sound (UPS), Linfield and the College of Idaho. The Northwest Conference, which for years sponsored athletic competition exclusively for men’s sports, and the Women’s Conference of Independent Colleges joined forces in 1984 to become the Northwest Conference of Independent Colleges. The name was shortened back to Northwest Conference in 1998. In 1998 all nine conference institutions shifted national affiliation from the NAIA to the NCAA.
