Constitution Week Events

Monday thru Friday, September 13-17, 2021, join your fellow students for Constitution Week 2021! On September 17, 1787, the members of the Constitutional Convention signed the United States Constitution in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Constitutional Convention convened in response to dissatisfaction with the Articles of Confederation and the need for a strong centralized government. After four months of secret debate and many compromises, the proposed Constitution was submitted to the states for approval. Although the vote was close in some states, the Constitution was eventually ratified and the new Federal government came into existence in 1789. The Constitution established the U.S. government as it exists today.

Join Student Civic Engagement, Dean of Students, Leadership Programs, CCI, and History and Political Science Department during Constitution Week to learn more about the various topics that relate to our United States Constitution. RSVP today for one of the many events.
