National Constitution Day Event

September 17, 2014


Join us for our annual celebration of National Constitution Day.

This year's event features guest speaker Matthew Lippman, Emeritus Professor in the UIC Department of Criminology, Law, and Justice. Dr. Lippman's address, "The Hidden Constitution: National Security, Electronic Surveillance and Privacy in the Age of Terror," will touch on the continuing debate regarding privacy and government surveillance. The lecture will run from 12:00-1:00 in SCE 302.
Come early or stay late and register to vote, to sign-up as an election judge or poll-watcher and also learn about internships and volunteer opportunities with many community and civic organizations.

This event is free and open to all!  If special accommodations are required, please call 312-996-3105 or email
