Register today for the Constitution Day Celebration and “Introduction to the Constitution” webcast series!
This six-week introductory course on the U.S. Constitution is really a six-day (make that evening, if you prefer) course delivered over a period of six weeks. Not to worry, you will not be inundated with information for hours on end each of those six days. People who, for the most part are not still in school somewhere, cannot be expected to absorb too much. That is the reason this is called an “Introduction to the Constitution.” The first night will primarily be devoted to remarks by Charles Krauthammer and Congressman Paul Ryan; both of whom know something about the U.S. Constitution. The five following lectures will be delivered by Dr. Larry Arnn, and I can promise you that you will not be bored by his lectures. He is a well-known (in conservative circles, as least), excellent lecturer who knows his subject as well as anyone you will ever hear or meet.

On September 15, in observance and celebration of Constitution Day, Hillsdale College will hold our second annual Constitution Day Celebration, this year featuring Congressman Paul Ryan, Charles Krauthammer, members of the Hillsdale College faculty, and other distinguished guests. Once you register for this event – it’s free – you’ll be able to watch all of these speeches and panels live from your home or office. Even if you are unable to watch on the day of the event, we will make all of the videos available to view in the weeks following.
Then, for the next five weeks after our Constitution Day Celebration, we invite you back to this site for a special series of lectures, delivered by Hillsdale College President Dr. Larry Arnn, called the “Introduction to the Constitution.” Included in what we will discuss is:
* What the framers of the Constitution understood about the document they were writing, especially its fundamental principles true of human beings at all times and in all places;
* Why the fundamental features of the American Constitution are representation and separation of powers;
* Why the key to a republican form of government is the vibrancy, size and independence of this private society.
This program will serve as the basis for future educational programs on Constitution and related topics, including a more complete Online Constitution Class, of which this series will serve as a basis. We will be asking for your participation and feedback along the way to help us improve our efforts.
Please share this information with others – your friends, family, and colleagues who, like you, understand the vital need for restoring an understanding and love of the Constitution in our great nation.
