Constitution Day is a time to commemorate the September 17, 1787 signing of the United States Constitution. Constitution Day is observed each year on September 17th, although UNCW may offer events and activities to celebrate the day throughout the week in which the date falls. The purpose of this week is to encourage the UNCW community to continue learning and appreciating this living document which, despite its birth over 200 years ago, still plays an integral role in our everyday lives. Constitution Day provides an opportunity to reflect on our government, our liberties, and our obligations as citizens in this democracy.
