On September 17, the third floor at the Harrington Learning Center, now home to QCC’s Alden Library, became the place for students, faculty and staff to go and learn more about their constitutional rights during Constitution Day.  On this day in 1787, 39 delegates signed the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Each year since 2004, the country has commemorated this day by and in recognition of all who were born in the United States or have become U.S. citizens.

All publicly funded educational institutions, and all federal agencies pay tribute to this day by providing educational programming on the history of the American Constitution. At QCC, free pocket-sized copies of the Constitution of the United States were handed out during the day.
