Earlham is a founding member of the Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA), a consortium of 13 private liberal arts colleges in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Among these resources are:
- Off-campus study programs that are recognized by GLCA and managed by different member colleges.
- Funding for research and professional development. Grants are available to GLCA faculty members engaged in various fields and are funded by a grant from the Mellon Foundation.
- Opportunities for discussion and reflection.
- Collaborative approaches to resources and learning.
HEARTLAND COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC CONFERENCE
Earlham competes in the NCAA Division III and is a proud member of the Heartland Collegiate Athletics Conference (HCAC), a conference consisting of 10 academically selective colleges and universities in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
The HCAC is dedicated to fostering a complementary relationship between intercollegiate athletics and the pursuit of academic excellence.
Athletics at Earlham
Students participate in three forms of competitive athletics at Earlham: intercollegiate, recreational and club sports offer on-campus competitions. Club sports are student-organized teams that compete off campus and are not supported by a full-time coach; they are cosponsored by Student Activities and Athletics.
About 30% of Earlham students participate in the College’s intercollegiate programs in 16 sports—nine for women and eight for men. Many of our students participate on more than one team.
