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... My own experiences and the experiences of those close to me have made me passionate abotu encouraging open dialogue among my peers surrounding difficult topics, such as body image, sexuality, and healthy vs. unhealthy relationships.  I want to be able to serve as a provider of accurate information regarding these topics as well as a friend to anyone on campus in need of a good listener.  My hope as a FIRE Starter is to continually work to rid the Notre Dame campus of its "taboo topics" and promote discussion between and acceptance of all students.
