Each educational institution in the United States that receives federal funding must observe Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, September 17th (or the week before or the week after when the 17th falls on a weekend). Many TDC member institutions have transformed the federal mandate into an opportunity to reflect on our government, our liberties, and our obligations as citizens in this democracy. It also creates a wonderful opportunity to launch the academic year with a set of inspiring activities.
The following are links to some resources that may be useful to you as you plan your Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. Please check TDC News for descriptions of what TDC member institutions have done to honor this special day of action and reflection.
