Inscription. On June 4, 1990, the Big Ten Conference admitted Penn State as its eleventh member. Established in 1895 as one of the nation's first intercollegiate athletic organizations, the conference instituted a blueprint for the control and administration of college athletics under the direction of appointed faculty representatives.
