PWSC is part of the University of Alaska Anchorage which is independently accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). With its campus in Valdez and two extension centers in Cordova and the Copper Basin region, PWSC serves an expansive rural area in Alaska and delivers a significant amount of distance delivery in addition to tradition classroom instruction.  History instructors are needed primarily to support the Associate of Arts degree program, as well as  General Education Requirement courses of the college. 

PWSC provides instruction through a variety of formats and structures. Adjunct faculty often teach by distance delivery, either asynchronously, synchronously, or belnded. Those teaching in classrooms often connect to multiple sites by video for synchronous instruction, depending on the discipline and nature of the course. Additionally, adjunct instructors may be appointed to teach dual credit courses consisting entirely of secondary students who are eligible to complete college-level coursework, and appointment terms may reflect high school academic semester schedules. 

Need for adjunct instructors is determined on a per-semester basis. Successful acceptance into the adjunct pool does not guarantee an offer of a contract, though qualified applicants will be held in the pool for multiple semesters in the chance that a need for instructors in their discipline may arise.
