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 believe mental health is an important component of every person. In my experience, most people tend to be critical of certain aspects of themselves that they do not think fit the norm. The struggle could be over their body image, sexual identity, or background. I believe through dialogue people can come to grasp, accept, or deal with these issues that they tend to hide or bury. I know that I have needed help to come to terms with certain parts of myself, and I wish to help others do the same.
