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 want to be a part of the GRC's mission to generate discussions within the Notre Dame community about the issues that college students encounter. As a fire starter, I will be able to educate my peers along with strength my understanding of how to approach dialogued regarding sexual assault, body image, and gender relations.
