Constitution Day

Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. A national initiative to increase awareness of the U.S. Constitution, celebrated on September 17.

Each year PACE supports Salisbury University in celebrating Constitution Day with an event in Red Square promoting awareness of the U.S. Constitution. Students, faculty, staff, and members of the community read the Constitution and then are asked if they would sign the Constitution today. PACE also provides voter registration information and hosts local candidates running for office at this event.

This year's Constitution Day celebration will take place on September 17th from 10am-2pm in Red Square.
