Anoka-Ramsey Community College, with campuses in Cambridge and Coon Rapids, has been a provider of higher education and training in the north suburban area of Minneapolis/St. Paul and East Central Minnesota since 1965.

Annually, the college serves more than 10,000 students as they pursue associate degrees that transfer as the first two years of a bachelor's degree, as well as certificate programs. Anoka-Ramsey Community College is a member of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System.

The college also focuses on providing professional development and continuing education programs for working adults. Over 5,570 registrants enroll in these courses each year.

Anoka-Ramsey is currently voting on changing it's name to Bridgeway College to better serve both campus locations.
