University presidents from schools affiliated with the Missouri Valley Conference unanimously voted on Monday night to formally invite Valparaiso University to join the conference, multiple sources told CBS Sports.

Valpo, which currently is a member of the Horizon League, is expected to accept the invitation and officially join the MVC on July 1.

The decision comes just over a month removed from Wichita State's departure from the 110-year-old league. The Shockers formally accepted a unanimous invite to join the American Athletic Conference on April 7. That move will be official on July 1.
