Each educational institution in the United States that receives
federal funding must observe Constitution Day, September 17th (or the
week before or the week after when the 17th 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.
The following are links to some resources that may be useful to you as you plan your Constitution Day. Please check the ADP Blog for descriptions of what AASCU's American Democracy Project campuses have done to honor Constitution Day.
