Approximately 800 students from area high schools will get multiple perspectives on the importance of the U.S. government on its 231st birthday through a Constitution Day performance and presentations on Sept. 17, 2018, at The University of Texas at El Paso.
UTEP faculty members from the departments of English, Theatre Arts and Political Science, and the Women’s Studies, Chicano Studies and African-American Studies programs will lead seven sessions that focus on the U.S. Constitution, several of its amendments and constitutional law. The activities are from 9:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Union Building East, the Fox Fine Arts Center and the Blumberg Auditorium inside the University Library.
The event will start at 9:30 a.m. with a brief welcome by Denis O’Hearn, Ph.D., dean of the College of Liberal Arts, at Centennial Plaza before the students go to the first of the three sessions they will attend. Topics will include citizenship, antislavery literature and the women’s suffrage movement.
