Constitution Day

CDay.pngConstitution Day 2020 will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment by engaging students in active research and collaborative learning with other students and community members on issues surrounding the U.S. Constitution.

This year, our collaborating organizations focus on civic engagement around the 8th as well as the 19th amendments to create positive change and engage in work toward “a more perfect union.”

Constitution Day 2020 goes live at 2 p.m. on September 17. Check back then for the full event!

The Intercollege Minor in Civic and Community Engagement (CIVCM), in tandem with the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences (CAS), hosts the annual Penn State “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day” celebration on September 17. 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 rights, responsibilities, and perils afforded by the United States' constitutive document.

This event places Penn State 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.
