On September 17, 1787, thirty-nine of this country’s founding father’s signed into action what would become perhaps the most important document in American history: The United States Constitution.

Constitution Week serves to commemorate the inception and signing of the U.S. Constitution—and as a strong reminder for citizens to educate themselves about the importance of this historical document and civic engagement.

“Constitution Week is significant because it reminds us that this important document established our rights as citizens as well as the long standing structure of our government," said Patricia S. Case, Ph.D., Faculty Chair, Social Sciences and Faculty Development Co-Coordinator at Rio Salado. "It has a profound influence on our daily life.”

As an educational institution, the Communiversity and its program partners are not only preparing students for successful careers— they also provide numerous opportunities for students to learn about  government and their role as citizens-- through political science classes, programs and events.We encourage you take advantage of these opportunities and to become a more active and engaged citizen.

Know your rights!  
We encourage you to pick up a free Constitution pocket guide at the Communiversity at QC and to visit the National Constitution Center for an all-new, interactive Constitution experience!
