The Franklin Pierce Ravens are the intercollegiate athletic teams that represent Franklin Pierce University, located in Rindge, New Hampshire, in NCAA sporting competitions. Franklin Pierce competes at the Division II level in 22 varsity sports.

In terms of conferences, the Ravens are primarily members of the Northeast-10 Conference, of which it has been a member since 2000. The three exceptions are the women's bowling team, which is a member of the East Coast Conference; the women's ice hockey team, which is officially an independent at the National Collegiate (Division I and II) level but participates in a scheduling agreement known as the New England Women's Hockey Alliance (NEWHA); and the women's rowing team, which competes as an independent. The NEWHA has announced its intent to become a fully recognized NCAA conference for the 2019–20 season and beyond.[2]
