The forerunner of the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics (DIA), the University of Illinois Athletic Association, was chartered in 1892 as a not-for-profit corporation of the State of Illinois. It was charged with overseeing and conducting the University's intercollegiate athletics programs and associated support services, and operated as as separate entity.
