The Equine Science Center, a unit of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, reported today that it received a $100,000 donation to support new initiatives, programs and better horse care through research and education.
The donation was made by Karyn Malinowski, Ph.D., director of the center and professor of animal sciences.
“I am extremely pleased to be able to make a gift and commitment to the Equine Science Center in recognition of research-based educational programming in the area of horse health and well-being,” Malinowski said. “The timing of this gift intentionally coincides with the university’s capital campaign and serves as a challenge to all who have benefitted from the center’s resources, including alumni, students and horse owners and equine enthusiasts worldwide. No gift is too small as it will contribute to the future sustainability of the Equine Science Center.”
The center, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, has the following program focus areas: equine health and well-being, land use policy and management, environmental stewardship, integrity of equestrian sport and economic growth and industry sustainability.
