The Intercollege Minor in Civic and Community Engagement, in tandem with the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences, hosts the annual PSU “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day” celebration on September 17th. This event highlights the ongoing societal relevance and dynamic quality of the United States Constitution, and offers students, faculty, and the public an opportunity to reflect on the privileges, perils, and obligations that accompany United States citizenship. The event features a variety of informative poster sessions, public presentations, and speakers.

This event places The Pennsylvania State University in compliance with the Consolidated Appropriations Act of Fiscal Year 2005, which requires public schools and governmental offices to provide educational programs to promote a better understanding of the United States Constitution.
