Dr. Norman Levan

The Levan Institute was made possible through a generous gift by Dr. Norman Levan, Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Medicine at USC Medical School and retired Bakersfield dermatologist. Its purpose 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 on-line, 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

Best wishes for enjoyable learning experience.
