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... No one should be denied the right to explore and express who they are.  Sexual assault, prejudice, misogyny, unrealistic expectations, etc. all infringe on this right and as a FIRE Starter, I hope to combat these negative influences and create a positive/loving space for everyone.
