- Constitution Day
Activities to Celebrate Constitution Day
Constitution Day commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Originally known as "Citizenship Day," the holiday was renamed when it was signed into law in 2004. In celebration of this historic document, this act of law mandates that all publicly funded educational institutions provide educational programming on the United States Constitution.
Edinboro University will celebrate Constitution Day with the following activities:
PANEL DISCUSSION: The University will host a panel discussion on September 18, 2012, at 7PM in Cole Auditorium entitled, "Money and Politics in the 2012 Election." Panel members include:
Dr. James Fisher, Political Science/Criminal Justice (Moderator)
Dr. Bridget Jeffery, Political Science/Criminal Justice
Mr. Dwaine Jengelley, Political Science/Criminal Justice
Dr. Rhonda Matthews, Sociology
Audience comments and questions will be welcomed at this event. Faculty are asked to encourage student attendance as appropriate.
FREE CONSTITUTIONS AND VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVE: There will be a lunch time voter registration drive in the Pogue Student Center, Van Houten Dining Hall, and the Rose Hall Food Court from October 1 - October 5. Free pocket Constitutions will be available while supplies last.
Reminder, the last day to register to vote is October 9. Students who wish to vote locally MUST have a valid ID, with a local address and expiration date.
