Constitution and Citizenship Day Oberlin
Oberlin College marks Constitution and Citizenship Day each September 17 to recognize the nation’s founding and to encourage reflection and civic awareness and participation.
Learning the Constitution
Oberlin Colleges Libraries has compiled a range of interactive materials that encourage you to explore and examine the U.S. Constitution.
Oberlin has recognized Constitution and Citizenship Day for the last several years featuring noted legal professionals who specialize in constitutional issues. Donica Thomas Varner, vice president, general counsel, and secretary, puts the day in perspective: why should we celebrate it—in an interview with fourth-year history major Zareen Kang. We also revisit a conversation with Varner and Ohio Supreme Court Justice Pat DeWine during his visit to campus.
