UNF hosting events this week to celebrate Constitution Day

Zach Yearwood, Managing Editor

On Sept. 17, 1787, the U.S. Constitution was signed, creating the groundwork of a social contract for a nation in its infancy. This week, UNF will be hosting events leading up to Thursday, Sept. 17 to celebrate the 233rd anniversary of the document’s signing.

UNF’s Center for Community-Based Learning, Office of Undergraduate Studies, Student Government and the College of Arts and Sciences partnered with each other to organize a few online events this week.

The school announced the following events in a press release Friday:

In this event hosted via Zoom, Dr. Sean Freeder and Prof. Adrienne Lerner will discuss a broad range of topics surrounding the 2020 Election, “from the ballot box to the courts.”
