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 to help the campus community develop an understanding of sexual assault as not simply a women's issue, but an issue that affects the whole Notre Dame family. I also want to help ND work towards the facilitation of healthy dating, relationships, and more fundamentally, more open dialogue and friendships between genders.
