Constitution Week Campus Events

Constitution Week

Constitution Week is an American observance to commemorate the adoption of the United States Constitution. First enacted in 1956, it has since become a time when civic activities related to voting rights and constitutional freedoms take place.

Several campus organizations, including Student Senate and Student Life, are participating in and hosting events in partnership with a number of local organizations, including LeadMN. These Constitution Week events are a first of a series of events leading up to Election Day in November.
