Constitution Day celebrates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by delegates to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. This federally mandated observance also honors all those who hold U.S. citizenship.

All Bellevue University undergraduate students also complete the Kirkpatrick Signature Series (KSS), a course series that examines the significance of active citizenship in a rapidly changing world, where popular government, Western traditions, and American values are often challenged.
