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 was shocked when I came on campus at the major gender and sexuality issues facing campus and the lack of willingness to discuss them. Though people hold strong opinions on issues relating to LGBTQ persons, they will shy away from any type of public dialogue, which creates a toxic campus environment.
