Visit the College's Constitution Day 2008 Web Site

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The United States Constitution established our country as a federal republic in which citizens choose who among them will lead the country. Together with the Bill of Rights, the Constitution secures for Americans a variety of rights and liberties. As citizens and patriots, we are responsible for exercising those rights and liberties for the good of all, and in order to prevent tyranny from taking hold, as it has in so many times and places throughout history.

For that reason, we celebrate Constitution Day on September 17. On this day, we honor the document that founded our nation, and affirm our duty to know it and preserve the rights and freedoms that it guarantees. We invite you to use the resources at www.esc.edu/constitutionday to learn more about the Constitution.

Constitution Day was established in 2005 by an act of Congress, which mandates that educational institutions receiving Federal funding are required to hold an educational program pertaining to the United States Constitution on September 17 of each year. Read the original Federal Register announcement authored by the Office of Innovation and Improvement in the U.S. Department of Education.
