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... You are not entitled to your opinion, you are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant."-Harlan Ellison. On Notre Dame's campus, so many of our issues stem from ignorance rather than spite. My goal as a FIRE Starter is to help open people's eyes to perspectives they have not considered, and make the campus a safer and more welcoming place.
