Constitution Day event Thursday explores the Constitutionality of Life

The College of Arts and Sciences Department of Social Sciences will present a two-hour event at University Campus  from 7 to 9 p.m., Thursday, September 15, in the Tapia College of Business Building, TECO Hall, on the Constitutionality of Life.

The event has been organized in observance of Constitution Day, which follows on Saturday, September 17, and which marks the day in 1787 when founding fathers, meeting in Philadelphia, signed the U.S. Constitution to establish America’s framework for governing.

This year, faculty in political science, history, philosophy, biology, theology, and criminal justice will hold a panel discussion on Constitutionality of Life that will focus on  abortion, euthanasia, and capital punishment as three topics that deeply touch all of those disciplines. 

Attendees also will be able to register to vote, take the Constitution Day Quiz, and enjoy food, door prizes, and other activities.

For more information, email Frank Orlando, instructor of political science, or Dr. Heather Parker, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences,
