Harvard University is a private university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Founded in 1636, Harvard is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States.

Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog gave a lecture in Harvard's Sanders Theatre on June 7, 1982.[1] The speech was written by Henson, his daughter Lisa (the first female president of the Harvard Lampoon),[2] and fellow Lampoon writer Jay Itzkowitz. Kermit imparted some wisdom from his unique frog perspective, "Now you are just a small fish in a small pond. Soon you will be the big fish in the big pond. And I know what it's like; I know what big fish are." He added, "As you set sail on the great vacation of life, think of Harvard as your travel agent."[3]

On February 8, 2005, Professor Grover visited Harvard University for a news conference announcing a new HGSE course, "Informal Learning for Children."
