Constitution Day & Citizenship Day
Engaged Discussion on Constitutional Topics
Each year, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte joins organizations across the nation by recognizing Constitution and Citizenship Day with a special presentation for students and community members. The federal holiday was formally established in 2005, to recognize the signing of the US Constitution on September 17, 1787, in Philadelphia, PA. It is an extension of the original holiday, Citizenship Day, which was signed by President Harry S. Truman in 1952 and other state-level observances before that.
