UVM Celebrates Constitution Day
Thursday, September 17, 2020

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.
