Creighton Distributes Copies of Constitution

To commemorate Constitution Day, Wednesday, Sept. 17, Creighton University will be providing free copies of the United States Constitution to students, faculty and staff. The distribution of this easy reference guide is intended to remind the campus community of the important role the Constitution plays in persons’ lives every day. Copies are available for pickup at the Academic Vice President's suite, Creighton Hall 236.

The School of Law is also hosting a lunch and DVD lecture on the Supreme Court during the lunch hour on Sept. 17 in the school’s commons area. The event is for law students only.

Sept. 17 is the date the U.S. Constitution was signed in 1787. "Constitution Day" became a law in 2005, when Congress mandated that all schools receiving federal monies must "hold an educational program pertaining to the United States Constitution on September 17 of each year."

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
