LINCOLN (AP) — A foundation created by pop music star Lady Gaga has chosen a University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor to help with its research efforts.
School psychology professor Susan Swearer will lead a research board that advises Gaga's Born This Way Foundation on its youth empowerment and tolerance programs. Swearer will serve as chairwoman of the six-member group.
Gaga's foundation recruited Swearer to help with its launch in February. Swearer co-directs the Bullying Research Network, which promotes cooperation among bullying and peer-victimization researchers.
