Constitution Day (September 17th) will be observed at NOVA during the week of September 18 - 22.
September 17th is also designated as Citizenship Day:
In 1952 Congress repealed this joint resolution and passed a new law moving the date to September 17 to commemorate “the formation and signing, on September 17, 1787, of the Constitution of the United States.” The day was still designated as “Citizenship Day” and retained its original purpose of recognizing all those who had attained American citizenship. This law urged civil and educational authorities of states, counties, cities and towns to make plans for the proper observance of the day and “for the complete instruction of citizens in their responsibilities and opportunities as citizens of the United States and of the State and locality in which they reside.”
Alexandria Campus will observe both commemorations with a series of talks given by faculty, as well as appropriate resources to read or watch available in the Library:

The geniusofAmerica : how the Constitution saved our country--and why it can again. KF4541 .L334x 2007
