In 1987, the Anchorage Community College merged with the University of Alaska Anchorage. From that merger, the College of Community and Continuing Education (CCCE) and the College of Career and Vocational Education (CCVE) were created. A major reorganization occurred in 1996, merging CCCE and CCVE, creating the Community & Technical College.
Today, UAA's Community & Technical College annually serves more than 6,000 students through 40 programs, leading to occupational endorsement and undergraduate certificates, associate of applied science and baccalaureate degrees, a master's degree and a post-baccalaureate dietetic intern program.
The Community & Technical College employees 76 full-time and 300 part-time faculty, 102 classified, professional and technical staff and is organized through seven career cluster and five service divisions.
