Constitution Week, California State University, Sacramento

"Constitution Day" commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Sacramento State celebrates this day each year through a series of events taking place during our Constitution Week.

The success of the week depends on the contributions of campus departments and organizations hosting a range of activities (lectures, film series, hands-on activities, and other direct or indirect civic learning opportunities) exploring constitutional issues and their contemporary relevance.
