The Gender Relations Center (GRC) promotes moral formation consistent with Catholic identity, mission and values.

As an office in Student Affairs, the GRC designs and implements programs about healthy relationships, gender and sexuality consistent with the Catholic character of the University.  It creates dialogue on campus by collaborating with student clubs, other departments at Notre Dame and community organizations in South Bend.  It is the first and only office of its kind within collegiate student affairs nationwide.

I am a FIRE Starter because... I want the challenge of making the rest of campus talk about the issues I care about.  I went to a pretty liberal high school in Maryland; thus gender and sexuality were never a big issue.  But at Notre Dame, I feel a little too constrained - unable to talk about some of the issues I feel should be talked about, and that is not fine with me.  Gender and sexuality are issues that are quite serious on the Notre Dame campus as well as the outside world.
