Northwestern to honor Constitution Day Sept. 20

September 10, 2010

Northwestern Oklahoma State University will honor Constitution Day with a discussion comparing and contrasting the U.S. Constitution with the Costa Rican Constitution. This free event is open to the public, and will be held in the Ranger Room on Monday, Sept. 20, from 1-3 p.m.

Dr. Mario Carvajal, former Costa Rican Ambassador to the European Union, will serve as a speaker for the Costa Rican Constitution, while Dr. Aaron Mason, assistant professor of politics, will defend the U.S. Constitution. J.W. Platt, instructor of history, will lead the discussion as moderator.

The Northwestern-Masonic Institute for Citizenship Studies is playing host to this event. As part of the day’s events, the Institute also has scheduled its grand opening at which the public also is invited to attend.

The grand opening will be celebrated from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Jesse Dunn, room 315. All local Mason’s who helped establish the Institute are welcome to come see how the Institute has been set up and to meet with Northwestern faculty.

Universities are required to engage in Constitution Day activities either on or around the actual celebration date of Sept. 17.

Contact Mason at (580) 327-8522 or with questions.
