National Constitution Day Lecture

In recognition of Constitution Day, which commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, educational institutions receiving federal funding are required to deliver educational programming about the Constitution. Carnegie Mellon University Libraries has presented these lectures in partnership with the Division of Student Affairs since 2005, previously covering topics like gerrymandering and the Civil War Amendments. The University Libraries' original printed copy of the Bill of Rights is typically on display for this event.
