A meeting of seven Midwest university presidents on January 11, 1895 established the principles for which the Intercollegiate Conference of Faculty Representatives would be founded.

Those seven universities were: University of Chicago, University of Illinois, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, Northwestern University, Purdue University and the University of Wisconsin.

Indiana University and the State University of Iowa were admitted in 1899. Ohio State joined in 1912. Chicago withdrew in 1946 and Michigan State College (now Michigan State University) was added three years later in 1949. In 1990, Pennsylvania State University was added into the Conference. Nebraska joined the conference in 2011. University of Maryland and Rutgers University will join the conference for the 2015 baseball season.
