Students commemorate Constitution/Citizenship Day
GCU News Bureau
Thursday is Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, which commemorates the signing of the Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787, and efforts by many to become U.S. citizens.
GCU students take it seriously. Last spring, just before the pandemic, students launched the GCU Civics Club, which will initiate projects in the coming weeks at local libraries and schools.
“GCU students know and appreciate the importance of our Constitution and what it means to our republic and democracy,” said Kevin Walling, Chair of Justice Studies, Government and History in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
“The GCU Civics Club engages with the community to teach basic civic lessons to students in the K-12 system, with a focus on teaching from non-partisan perspectives about such subjects as free speech, equal protection and right to privacy.”
