Q&A with Adam Daurio: The Temple Grandin Equine Center at CSU Colorado State University has long been seen as one of the leading universities for agricultural and equine sciences. The university recently unveiled plans for the Temple Grandin Equine Center (TGEC) (https://tgec.agsci.colostate.edu/files/2015/02/TGEC-Brochure-2015.pdf), a first of its kind facility that will celebrate and elevate the role of the horse in society through a focus on the physical and emotional benefits of serving those in need. Designed by Populous, the facility will become a living classroom, blending research with community equine assisted activities and therapies and a focus on educating future leaders. We sat down with Adam Daurio, Director of Administration and Outreach for the Temple Grandin Equine Center, to discuss the facility’s future impact.

The project, involving a new partnership between two of Colorado State University’s flagship academic programs, is the result of a $US468,000 gift from the Carl and Caroline Swanson Foundation.
Its backers hopes it will lead to a better understanding of the potential benefits of horse-related therapy.
The program will be led by Wendy Wood, head of of the university’s Department of Occupational Therapy. She will be joined by two graduate students and a doctoral candidate in the research, carried out in partnership with the university’s equine sciences program.
