Temple Grandin speaks at NDSU on Friday

FARGO – Temple Grandin, an innovator in the livestock handling field, and a well-known advocate for people with autism, will speak at 1:30 p.m. Friday at North Dakota State University.

Her presentation, “Different, Not Less,” will be in the Memorial Union Ballroom.

On Thursday, the Emmy Award-winning HBO film “Temple Grandin,” which chronicles her struggles with autism and her accomplishments, including becoming a top scientist in the humane livestock-handling industry, will be shown at 7 p.m. in Room 24 of NDSU’s Sudro Hall.

Grandin is a longtime animal science professor at Colorado State University. The NDSU animal sciences department is hosting both events.

Seating for both events is limited. Visitors should park in the visitor parking lot in the center of the NDSU campus.
