  • A line of people stand waiting to read from the constitution in front of the IUP library

    Constitution Day

    Monday commemorates the September 1787 signing of the US Constitution. Events kick off with a public reading of the Constitution by members of the IUP community from noon to 1:00 p.m. in front of Stapleton Library. Later, at the Six O’Clock Series, four of the Constitution’s authors—Ben Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Charles Pinckney, and James Madison—will discuss the challenges in drafting the Constitution, and will speculate about what the Founders would think of today’s politics.
