Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by
Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is an American federal observance that recognizes the
adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is
observed on September 17, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution
in 1787.
The law establishing the present holiday was created in 2004 with the passage of an
amendment by Senator Robert Byrd to the Omnibus spending bill of 2004 . Before this law was
enacted, the holiday was known as "Citizenship Day". In addition to renaming the holiday
"Constitution Day and Citizenship Day," the act mandates that all publicly funded educational
institutions provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on
that day. In May 2005, the United States Department of Education announced the enactment
of this law and that it would apply to any school receiving federal funds of any kind.
Middlesex Community College joins universities and colleges nationwide to commemorating
the adoption of the United States Constitution as a time for Middlesex Community College to
continue the legacy of the founders by offering programs that develop habits of citizenship in
each new generations of Americans.
