I am reading an easy french novel and am confused about the grammer in these instances:

why is the enfuir not conjugated, and preceded by the a?
why do you need the a before the perdre?
thanks for your help

The university is named after (Rev) John Harvard, so my first thought was that it would follow the same format as for instance "Institut Pasteur" and should just be Université Harvard, or at least be treated as h aspiré and be 'de Harvard'. Last on my list would have been d'Harvard. However it appears all are acceptable ?
