On Friday, Sept. 16, Spring Arbor University will recognize Constitution Day on its main campus with a symposium titled, “Barely Legal: A Constitution Day Conversation.” The event will take place in Whiteman-Gibbs, room 110, from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
The faculty-led symposium will include brief talks by SAU faculty members Mark Correll, Rachel Van Wylen, Jeff Bilbro, and Richard Cornell. These talks will span a breadth of subjects based on legal issues that are involved in all facets of our lives and vocations.
The Constitution was signed on Sept. 17, 1787, and is one of the most influential documents in our nation. Constitution Day was first recognized in Iowa schools in 1911. In 1917, the Sons of the American Revolution formed a committee to continue to honor and recognize Constitution Day. Learn more about Constitution Day at constitutionday.com.
The University will also distribute copies of the Constitution to students on Sept. 16. To access a full-text version, as well as scanned copies, of the U.S. Constitution and other historical, governmental documents, visit the National Archives website.
