Constitution Day at the University of Vermont

UVM Celebrates Constitution Day
Monday, September 18, 2017

Pursuant to legislation passed by Congress in 2004, educational institutions receiving federal funding are required to hold an educational program pertaining to the United States Constitution on the anniversary of the document's signing, September 17th (or in the preceding or following week if the day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday). Resources and additional readings are available.


On Constitution Day, we reflect on issues relevant to colleges and their students, including free speech in the digital age, freedom of the press, reproductive rights, and the conduct of war -- these all have constitutional dimensions.

Read it!

A FREE pocket-size copy of the U.S. Constitution and related information may be obtained at the Government Documents office on the ground floor of the Bailey-Howe Library or at the Office of University Relations located at Room 300 in the Waterman Building.

Constitution Day at UVM is September 18, 2017

We encourage students, faculty, and staff to reflect on the Constitution, its history, and its importance in everyday life.
