Constitution Day is a celebration of the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine of the 55 Delegates to the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787. The date is also designated Citizenship Day to focus on the rights and responsibilities of citizens under the Constitution.

At Purdue University, Constitution Day is coordinated by the College of Education’s James F. Ackerman Center for Democratic Citizenship. The event strives to educate students and community members about the Constitution and citizenship both historically and as they apply to today’s challenges.
