Constitution Day commemorates the September 1787 signing of the US Constitution, which is 230 years old this year.

Sponsored by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Department of Political Science, events at IUP will lead off with a public reading of the Constitution by members of the IUP community from noon to 1:00 p.m. in front of Stabley Library, facing the Oak Grove.

The first 100 participants will receive a special “We the People at IUP” T-shirt, as well as a pocket-sized copy of the Constitution and a star-shaped cookie. IUP President Michael Driscoll will begin the event with a reading of the Preamble.

RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network) Day is an annual national day dedicated to education and outreach around domestic and sexual violence. The Haven Project will be hosting a table with information and resources. Stop by for giveaways and to sign an umbrella to show your support for RAINN Day!

President’s Open Forum

Gorell Recital Hall, Second floor, Sutton Hall

President’s Office

An open forum for the president to take questions from IUP faculty, staff, and students on issues of their choosing.

The purpose of the Open Forum is to answer questions posed by members of the audience. However, a box will be placed in front of Gorell Recital Hall. Those who wish to submit questions anonymously may do so until the time the forum begins.

The intentions of the authors of the US Constitution will be explored in this Six O’Clock Series presentation.

Three of the Constitution’s authors—Ben Franklin, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison—will discuss the challenges in drafting the Constitution, and will speculate about what the founders would think of today’s politics. These founders will be portrayed, respectively, by IUP political science professors David Chambers and Steven Jackson and by history professor Joe Mannard. Audience participation and questions are encouraged.
