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 wanted to be a part of difficult conversations. Notre Dame has a unique challenge and opportunity to discuss topics, such as gender identity and body image, from the perspective of a Catholic and intellectually curuious campus. These conversations are particularly important to have with the freshmen, so it is my responsibility in my final year to facilitate.
