Constitution Day: September 17

Celebrate the United States Constitution!

To mark this year’s Constitution Day (Sunday, September 17th), the Library has compiled a guide of resources, including primary source documents, to provide the College community with information about one of America’s most important documents.

Established by Congress in 2004, Constitution Day recognizes the ratification of the U.S. constitution on September 17, 1787.  The law, introduced by Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, requires all educational institutions receiving federal funds provide information and instruction about the Constitution on September 17th each year.
