Salisbury University students on campus

Constitution Day

Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.

Each year PACE supports Salisbury University in celebrating Constitution Day with an event in The 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.

Join us Tuesday, September 19 in The Square to let us know:
Should strong public education be a Constitutional right?

Then continue the conversation as we investigate three institutions that shape our lives: Schools, Housing systems, and Prisons.

Each institution will be the focus of four sessions held on consecutive Monday evenings from 7-8:30 pm in the Worcester Room.

  • Sept 18 – Oct 9: Schools
  • Oct 16 – Nov 6: Housing
  • Nov 13 – Dec 4: Prisons
