CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Lady Gaga is expected to be joined by Oprah Winfrey and U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at Harvard University for the launch of the singer's Born This Way Foundation.

A kickoff event is scheduled for Wednesday at Harvard's Graduate School of Education.

The Born This Way Foundation will address self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development through research, education and advocacy.

It is partnering with the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The California Endowment and The Berkman Center at Harvard to explore the best ways to create a culture of kindness, bravery, acceptance and empowerment.

Author and spiritual leader Deepak Chopra and Harvard Law professor Charles Ogletree are also scheduled to attend.
