Constitution Day

Institutions must comply with the “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005.” The law states that “each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year shall hold an educational program to commemorate the United States Constitution on September 17 of such year for the students served by the educational institution.” The law requires that Constitution Day be held on September 17th of each year, commemorating the September 17, 1787 signing of the Constitution. However, when September 17th falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, Constitution Day is held during the preceding or following week.
