Program Mission

ND LIGHTS is consistent with the University of Notre Dame’s core values by supporting:

  • The Catholic mission by sharing our gifts with schools across the globe
  • Sustainability by giving the instruments a second life as teaching tools
  • Broader impacts by providing laboratory tools and training to educators and
    students in the local community and beyond

It is the goal of ND LIGHTS to give surplus laboratory equipment a second life in resource-limited schools while providing necessary materials and accessories for recipient teachers to implement it into their courses.
