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 learn leadership skills that will help me make a difference here at Notre Dame. I hope Firestarters will make me a more confident individual in whom others can turn to when they are in need of help. Being a very conservative campus, Notre Dame is not always the easiest place to express opinions, but hopefully I can help people express their opinion and be themselves.
