List of NCAA schools with the most AIAW Division I national championships
Listed below are the colleges and universities with the most AIAW top-level sanctioned team championships. Before the NCAA began sponsoring women's collegiate sports, the AIAW operated as a national organizing body, conducted tournaments, and awarded national championships for women's sports from 1972 to 1982. Its predecessor within the same overall organization was the Division for Girls' and Women's Sports (DGWS), which sponsored competition and conducted team championships in eight sports from the 1967–68 year through the winter of the 1971–72 year, at which time the AIAW came into being. The table below includes AIAW and DGWS championships won both before and after the existence of divisions. Results are included for the Large College Division, which was later renamed Division I.
