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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best wishes for enjoyable learning experience.
Dr. Robert Allison
