Your Vote & the First Amendment

The Institute for Ethics and Public Life invites you to take part in SUNY Plattsburgh’s annual observance of Constitution Day.

  • Tuesday, September 20, 2022
  • 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. over Zoom

To mark the day, SUNY Plattsburgh, together with SUNY Cortland, SUNY Old Westbury and Nassau Community College, will be hosting a set of educational and participatory events for students and faculty. Activities will include a keynote address, followed by a documentary screening and panel discussion, and then concluding with moderated small-group discussions and a large-group debrief.

Obligated as a public institution of higher learning receiving federal funds, SUNY Plattsburgh, through its Institute for Ethics in Public Life, has led educational activities every September since the establishment of Constitution Day by Congress in 2004. 

The Institute for Ethics in Public Life is a program of SUNY Plattsburgh with additional support made possible through generous gifts to the Plattsburgh College Foundation.
