On September 17, 1787, the U.S. Constitution was signed by 39 brave men who changed the course of history. Now Constitution Day is a time for us to continue their legacy and develop habits of citizenship in a new generation of Americans.
On the PLV Campus, stop by Butcher Suite and the Kessel Well from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. as Residential Life, SDCA, Student Government Association, and the Center for Community Action and Research work together to promote citizenship for students. There will be free cookies, mini-Constitutions, a banner pledge, and all those who participate will receive a raffle ticket for prizes to be drawn at the conclusion of the day, including a $25 voucher to Chartwells, items from the campus bookstore, and Pace apparel.
On the NYC Campus, Dean for Students Marijo Russell O’Grady, PhD, and the Civic Engagement Floor will be handing out red, white, and blue mini cupcakes and mini-Constitutions in One Pace Plaza. The Library will also host a Constitution and justice display throughout the month. In addition, these topics will be explored in a September 19 community discussion on Trayvon Martin.
