Constitution Day and Citizenship Day


On September 17, 1787, U.S. Constitutional Convention was signed by thirty-nine delegates.

Constitution Day (or Citizenship Day) is the day that recognizes the ratification of the United States Constitution, and also recognizes all who have become citizens due to either coming of age or naturalization.

Message from CSI President Jeff Fox

Dr. Jeff FoxThe preamble to the Constitution of the United States begins with the words, "We the people." These three words alone signal an amazing, unique, and profound philosophy that defines who we are as Americans, how we act, how we think, and how we serve each other in community.

As we do every year, the College of Southern Idaho celebrates Constitution Day this fall. Each year, our program takes a look at the underpinnings and the message our U.S. Constitution provides. I am grateful to CSI's Social Sciences Department for its ongoing efforts to share expertise to our students and our community each year. I encourage you to observe this important day with us, take some time and study the information available to you on our Constitution Day website to help you learn about this very important document, and attend educational programs offered on this topic.

Best Regards,
Dr. Jeff Fox
