Constitution Day

The Department of Communication Arts and Sciences and the intercollege minor in Civic and Community Engagement will host Penn State's annual Constitution 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 privileges, perils, and obligations that accompany United States citizenship. The event features a variety of informative poster sessions, presentations, and speakers.

This year's focus will be on the 19th Amendment, which was ratified 100 years ago. The main portion of this year's event will be educational posters created by approximately 50 students in two sections of CAS 222/CIVCM 211 Foundations of Civic and Community Engagement. Those students will be online during the event to answer questions and address comments about their posters.
