Texas A&M Celebrates Constitution Day & Citizenship Week 2016
On May 24, 2005, the Assistant Deputy Secretary for Innovation and Improvement in the U.S. Department of Education announced that, pursuant to legislation passed by Congress, educational institutions receiving federal funding are required to hold an educational program pertaining to the United States Constitution on September 17 of each year. A notice published in the Federal Register outlined the requirements for such a program. The legislation did not authorize funds to carry out this requirement and the Notice of Implementation does not indicate that the Department of Education has plans to monitor compliance.
2016 Activities Coming Soon!
In honor of the 229th anniversary of the signing of United States Constitution on September 17, 1787, Texas A&M University is joining thousands of citizens, teachers, and students nationwide in celebrating Constitution Day. Join the celebration by participating in the activities planned for the Texas A&M campus and the Bryan-College Station community.
