Posted on

In recognition of U. S. Constitution Day, Dakota Wesleyan University invites the community to campus for a panel discussion.

On Tuesday, Sept. 10, a group of DWU faculty members will address questions from the audience on the topic, “Is America a Christian Nation?” This event will start at 11 a.m. in Tiger Café, the coffee shop located in the McGovern Library, and is free and open to the public.

The panel will include DWU professors Dr. Joel Allen, associate professor of religion, Dr. Barbara Duffey, associate professor of English, Dr. Sean Flynn, professor of history, and Dr. Ryan Van Zee, associate professor of entrepreneurship and the executive director of the Kelley Center. The facilitator will be Dr. John Lang, director of the McGovern Center.

“U.S. Constitution Day at DWU honors George McGovern’s legacy by asking a difficult and fundamental question about our national identity at a pivotal moment in our history,” said Lang.

This event is hosted by the McGovern Center for Leadership and Public Service.

Constitution Day is celebrated every September to mark the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution 232 years ago.
