The Dakota Athletic Conference was formed from a merger between the North Dakota College Athletic Conference and the South Dakota Intercollegiate Conference. Two schools have left the conference in its history: the University of Mary joined the NCAA in 2006, and Si Tanka-Huron closed in 2005. Dakota State University has announced they are leaving the DAC in July 2011 to become an NAIA independent. Additionally, member schools Minot State, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, and Black Hills State University are also leaving the conference while in the process of transitioning to NCAA Division II.
