Mendocino College celebrates Constitution Day Sept. 17

UKIAH – This year marks the 220th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution by the Constitution Convention delegates on September 17, 1787.


On Monday, Sept. 17, Mendocino College celebrates “Constitution Day” with several campus-based activities.


What is Constitution Day? Federal legislation proposed by West Virginian Senator Robert C. Byrd and passed by Congress requires all educational institutions, which receive federal funds from the Department of Education to provide education programs relating to the United States Constitution on

Sept. 17 of each year, which went into effect May 24, 2005.


Constitution Day activities include Mendocino College student volunteers conducting a voter registration drive on campus, video presentations in The Eagle's Nest during the lunch hour of Supreme Court Justices commenting on the Constitution¹s impact on landmark rulings, and membership drives for various political clubs.
