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've come to know so many amazing people at Notre Dame, St. Mary's and Holy Cross college that I could not stand for any of them to face injustices, prejudice or discrimination based on their identity. I hope to help educate my peers to exude the Catholic ideal of universal love and acceptance to create a home for everyone here. Differences in identities can spark conversation debates, but I believe we can use these discussions to further a pursuit of inclusion and security among the student body.
