“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for the second time in the history of the world, humankind will have discovered fire."
– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.

An office in the Division of Student Affairs, the Gender Relations Center (GRC) designs and implements programs about healthy relationships, gender, and sexuality consistent with the Catholic character of the University. The GRC seeks to create dialogue on campus by collaborating with student groups, other departments at Notre Dame, and cross-campus partners at Saint Mary’s College and Holy Cross College. It was the first office of its kind within collegiate student affairs nationwide.Learn more about the GRC →
The GRC is staffed by student affairs professionals committed to educating minds and hearts by facilitating dialogue on relationships, sexuality, gender and intersectional identity, and encouraging students to ask three questions: who am I? Who am I with others? Who am I with God?
