It is a day that may seem insignificant, but in actuality changes Americans lives.

That day is recognized as Constitution Day. It is a celebration of the day when the founders established the official structure of government.

The UA Constitution Day Planning Committee and the Department of Education receive federal funding to annually celebrate Constitution Day. Universities are invited to do so on or near Sept. 17 to commemorate the 1787 signing of the U.S. Constitution.

The university not only celebrated Monday, but will continue events through today.

Monday included a panel discussion on the Presidency and the Constitution. Professor Elizabeth Mancke presented The Founders, the Constitution and Presidential Power.

Professor Wilson Huhn lectured on the Steel Seizure Crisis: Supreme Court Justice Views on Presidential Power and associate professor David Cohen, discussed The George W. Bush Presidency: Redefining Presidential Power?

A popular event occurred from noon to 3 p.m. in the Student Union lobby. Students were challenged on how much they know about their country, spinning a giant wheel with questions about the constitution, and could win their own pocket-sized constitution and free candy.

In the case that students forgot to register to vote, they could have done so in the Student Union at the constitution wheel.

Another panel discussion, Theories of Equality under the Constitution, will be held today from noon to 1 p.m. in the School of Law, room 151. Professors William Rich,Tracy Thomas, Brant Lee, and associate dean Elizabeth Reilly will discuss Four Theories of Equality. The session will be moderated by professor Wilson Huhn.

A multimedia program on Race and the Constitution: An American Dialog will take place in the Student Union Theater from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. All are invited.

The UA Constitution Day Planning Committee invites students, faculty, and staff to participate in a constitutional drama written by Huhn, with music chosen and performed by Reilly, with accompaniment from assistant dean Lauri File.
