The Levan Institute for Lifelong Learning is partnering with the American Red Cross to offer three "Be Red Cross Ready" presentations on July 7, 8, and 9, 2020. These are designed to help people understand, prepare for, and respond appropriately to disasters with a focus on Kern County. Learn simple steps that you can take now to help prepare and protect your family.
These presentations will be offered virtually and are free. Watch any or all of them! For more information or to register, visit the Courses and Registration page.
The Levan Institute's fall 2020 class schedule will be posted on the Courses and Registration page in mid-July with registration beginning on Sunday, July 19th at 10 AM. This schedule will also be published in the Bakersfield Californian on July 19 (usually in the Comics section). In response to COVID-19, our classes will be predominately offered online.
The Levan Institute was made possible through a generous gift by the late Dr. Norman Levan. Dr. Levan was a 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.
The Levan Institute Committee and I have done our best to meet your needs. We would like your input - comments and suggestions - so that we can improve the program for next time. You can provide that input by sending me an email or by filling out our survey form.
The email address is email@example.com.
Best wishes for an enjoyable learning experience.
