Quincy University’s School of Humanities is sponsoring a town hall forum in celebration of Constitution Day. The forum will take place on Monday, September 18, from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. in MacHugh Theatre in Francis Hall on QU’s main campus.

Constitution Day is a national celebration commemorating the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who have become citizens.

“In this year’s forum, we’ll explore contested understandings of democracy and revisit the perennial and increasingly relevant debates over the founding of the United States. Who are we, and where are we going? Who should we be, and where should we be going?” said Padraic Rohan, PhD, assistant professor of history.

All members of the community are encouraged to participate.
