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 spent years being angry about social injustice.  I realized that this anger stemmed from a sense of helplessness and isolation in the face of these overwhelming problems, and to combate those feelings, I wanted to be in a position to help correct injustice.  The FIRE Starters program puts me in a position to affect real social change on campus and participate in a system of mutual support.  I am particularly passionate about sexual violence, LGBT Issues, and body positivity.  I'm incredibly excited to begin making a difference.
