Dickinson State University will host a discussion panel in honor of Constitution Day entitled, “Censorship and Free Speech: First Amendment Rights in the Internet Age,” Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 4 p.m. in Beck Auditorium, Klinefelter Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

“Constitution Day is a nation-wide observance of our founding national document,” said Dr. Steven Doherty, DSU assistant professor of political science. “It is the day that Americans commemorate, explore and debate the significance and relevance of the U.S. Constitution, which is the guarantor of our rights and freedoms and the basis for the American political system.”

Speakers will include DSU faculty members. A question and answer session will follow immediately after presentations.
