We knew Harvard and Gaga can bring in the little monsters, but Oprah, too?

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey will join Lady Gaga and Cynthia Germanotta, Gaga’s mom, at Harvard Feb. 29 to celebrate the launch of Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, according to The Crimson.

In addition to Gaga and Winfrey, other presenters will include author Deepak Chopra, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Harvard Law School professor Charles J. Ogletree.

The launch will be held in Sanders Theater and is co-sponsored by Harvard Graduate School of Education, the Born This Way Foundation, Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the California Endowment.

In line with the values espoused in her hit song “Born This Way,” Gaga’s Foundation strives to create a culture of self-confidence by helping individuals realize their full potential without facing hate or bullying.
