GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Clemson University President James F. Barker,
chair of the Council of Presidents, announced that the Atlantic Coast
Conference has extended formal invitations for membership to the
University of Miami and Virginia Tech. The invitation to Virginia
Tech is subject to final completion of the conference by-law
requirements, which is currently underway. Miami completed its by-law
requirements earlier.


"Our member institutions reached agreement to officially offer
membership in the Atlantic Coast Conference to the University of
Miami and Virginia Tech," said Barker. "These two institutions
represent and share the values for which the ACC has long been known.
We feel they will be a great addition to our family."

"Through the ACC's first 50 years, the conference has
earned a reputation for excellence in both academics and athletics.
As we look to the future, we are confident that our schools, coaches
and student-athletes will maintain that heritage."


The ACC Media Relations Office will issue a media
advisory at the appropriate time in regards to any press conference
addressing conference expansion.
