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... each and every person should have the freedom to search for their identity and feel comfortable with who they are. Specifically, I want to help others feel comfortable with their bodies because our bodies do matter- they will carry us through a life of experience and transformation. The image of each person's body should inhibit the experience of life. I want all people to know they may be in their body but they are more than just their body.
