As the primary provider of post-secondary education in the Bering Strait region, Northwest Campus offers a variety of lifelong learning and special interest courses to enrich the lives of western Alaskans. The campus also hosts academic and culturally-relevant public lectures to bring attention to various contemporary issues.

Most Northwest Campus special interest courses are led by adjunct instructors. Adjuncts add great diversity to Northwest Campus's list of course offerings. Our adjuncts have taught courses on a wide range of topics, including ceramics, photography, watercolor, Microsoft Excel and Word, emergency medical services, first aid, snowmachine maintenance and repair, welding, edible and medicinal plants, and various languages.

Northwest Campus continually solicits part-time adjuncts in all areas of expertise. In addition to Nome based offerings, adjuncts are frequently utilized to lead Northwest classes in regional villages.
