Constitution Day

Each year, the College recognizes and celebrates Constitution Day.  

On Sept. 17, 1787, thirty-nine men signed the U.S. Constitution.  The Constitution Day program is aimed at remembering their legacy while envisioning the next generation of world leaders and admirable citizens.

West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd was known for promoting a “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day.”  In 2004, Congress passed the provision saying “every school and college that receives federal money must teach about the Constitution on Sept. 17.”
