The Levan Institute was made possible through a generous gift by the late Dr. Norman Levan.  Dr. Levan was  Distinguished   Professor of Medicine and head of dermatology at USC Medical School as well as a long time Bakersfield dermatologist. The purpose of the Levan Endowment is to make interesting and useful learning experiences available primarily to those 55 and over who are interested in continuing to gain knowledge throughout their lives.

The course descriptions, class schedules and enrollment information are on this website, as well as in our schedule published in The Bakersfield Californian. You may enroll online, by mail or, if you wish, in person at Bakersfield College.
