Constitution Day

Constitution Day is a celebration of the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by 39 of the 55 Delegates to the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787. The date is also designated Citizenship Day to focus on the rights and responsibilities of citizens under the Constitution.

Student Engagement and Student Affairs work with faculty and staff to develop presentations on topics such as free speech, partisanship in the Supreme Court and offer the students the opportunity to Register to Vote.
