SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. — Slippery Rock University is hosting its annual Constitution Day event with a trivia contest and discussion, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Sept. 17, via Zoom. The virtual event is organized by the SRU Political Science Department and Pi Sigma Alpha, the SRU chapter of a national political science honor society, and all members of the SRU campus community, as well as the public, are welcome to attend.

"It's important for people to continually recognize the Constitution by learning about its contents, history and intentions," said Nicholas Spina, assistant professor of political science. "As Americans, it's our responsibility to honor and uphold this communal agreement through our collective recognition of its provisions."

The Zoom event will feature interactive games and a conversation about the Constitution as well as opportunities for attendees to learn more about the U.S. political system.

SRU faculty, students and staff can find the Zoom link on the event's CORE page. Other interested participants can access the event by emailing Spina at to request a link to the Zoom meeting.

The U.S. Congress created Constitution Day in 2004 to encourage more people to recognize the Constitution. The day is observed annually to commemorate the signing of the final version of the Constitution, which occurred Sept. 17, 1787. All institutions that receive federal funds are required to offer Constitution Day educational programming.
