Each educational institution in the United States that receives federal funding must observe Constitution Day and Citizenship Day each year on September 17 (or the week before or after when the September 17 falls on a weekend).
Many ADP participating campuses have transformed this 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 and Citizenship Day.
