In April 1998, then-provost David Potter declared the 1998-99 academic year a “celebration of learning” during which members of the university community would “improv[e] our understanding of learning and consider ways to inspire and achieve greater learning individually and together.” As part of the Celebration of Learning initiative, the Provost’s Office created a small grants program to encourage greater student/faculty interaction both within and across disciplines.
