Constitution Day is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution. Each year, publicly funded educational institutions provide programming on the history of the Constitution on September 17.
SUNY Cobleskill is committed to supporting civic engagement through applied learning, in-class, and club activity.
We hope that you will engage in these activities today to learn more about the founding of the United States and how it applies to you today. Follow along using #SUNYConstitutionDay
