Constitution Day commemoration planned


NAU has two days of activities planned to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787.

Wednesday’s events will take place at Ashurst Auditorium, with lunch and a University College Showcase from 11:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. “Students’ public achievement efforts will be highlighted,” said event organizer and University College Coordinator Kelley Sliva McKee. “These first-year students engage with community partners to identify issues of concern in the community and effect change.”

A post-primary candidate forum is scheduled from 1 to 2:30 p.m. for people to learn more about candidate platforms. At the NAU Art Museum, the exhibit Painting in the World: Reflections on Politics, Violence, and Reconciliation will be available for viewing Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 5 p.m.

The NAU Constitution Day commemoration will continue Thursday, Sept. 18. The statewide Project Civil Discourse from 6 to 8:30 p.m. will be held at NAU’s Social and Behavioral Sciences West, room 107, and at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the Sedona Center for Arts and Technology.
