Observing Constitution Day

Each educational institution in the United States that receives federal funding must observe Constitution Day, Sept. 17 (or the week before or the week after when Sept. 17 falls on a weekend).

In AASCU’s American Democracy Project (ADP), many campuses have transformed that little-known federal mandate into an opportunity to reflect on our government, our liberties and our obligations as citizens in this democracy. It also creates a wonderful opportunity to launch the academic year with a set of inspiring activities.
