OU holds Constitution Day on Sept. 19By Rebecca Wyatt, OU Web Writer
OU’s annual Constitution Day will be held Tuesday, Sept. 19 with a panel discussion centered around immigration, citizenship and the Constitution. The panel will be held from noon-1 p.m. in the Oakland Center Fireside Lounge.
“The topic of immigration has been in the news a lot this summer. This topic is certainly timely,” said Jean Ann Miller, director of the Center for Student Activities and Leadership Development.
Panelists include Assistant Professor of Political Science Dave Dulio, Associate Professor of History Todd Estes, Cooley Law Professor Brendan Berry, and Luz Telleria from the Hispanic Outreach and Catholic Services of Oakland County.
Constitution Day is a federally mandated program held at most colleges throughout the United States.
Constitution Day is part of the College of Arts and Science’s liberal arts initiative, Global Citizenship, and the Hispanic Celebration 2006: Trabajando para el Futuro that runs Sept. 13-29.
