As an office within the Division of Student Affairs, the Gender Relations Center (GRC) promotes moral formation consistent with Catholic identity, mission and values in an effort to create a healthy culture at the University of Notre Dame. As the first of its kind nationwide, the GRC designs and implements programs about healthy relationships, sexuality, and gender. Committed to the spiritual, emotional and intellectual development of all students, the GRC seeks to engage the campus in respectful dialogue and seeks to build a community that fully honors the human dignity of each person as a child of God. The GRC serves the Notre Dame community through:
- Educational initiatives
- Outreach services
- Pastoral care
The Center for Social Concerns (CSC) pushes the boundaries of the classroom into the neighborhoods of South Bend and beyond. Through collaboration, partnership, and participation the Center serves as a transformative agent in the South Bend-Michiana area. This occurs in many ways.
The CSC works with University partners and more than 60 local community partners facilitating volunteer opportunities and providing transportation to and from partner sites and connecting faculty, undergraduate, and graduate students to social service organizations for community-based courses and community-based research. The Center has formalized relationships with seven of those community organizations in which a Community-Based Learning Coordinator (CBLC) works closely with the CSC. The Center also helps students, faculty, and other University constituents find non-curricular service, advocacy, community organizing, and other opportunities to become engaged locally in addressing social concerns.
