Constitution Day 2017

Iowa Wesleyan University Celebrates Constitution Day on Sept 18, 2017.

Constitution Day:

On September 17, 1787, delegates to the Constitutional Convention met to sign the Constitution. Iowa schools first recognized Constitution Day in 1911. Constitution Day became an official holiday in 2004 when the Constitution Day amendment to the Omnibus Spending Bill passed.

In May 2005, the United States Department of Education backed the law when it announced that it would apply to any school receiving federal funds of any kind. All educational institutions which receive Federal funds are required to hold a program for students every Constitution Day.
