Constitution Day Panel: Constitutional Crises: Past, Present, Future

Please join us for a Constitution Day panel and discussion

In 2004, the United States Congress designated September 17 as “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day” and required educational institutions receiving Federal funds to host programming for students on that day annually. This year, in the midst of a global pandemic, mass uprising against white supremacy and racial injustice, increasingly bold and violent white nationalism, and profound threats to democratic norms and processes, OSU’s Constitution Day event will explore the theme of “Constitutional Crises: Past, Present, Future.”


  • Christopher Stout, Associate Professor of Political Science at Oregon State University on voting rights and electoral democracy
  • Rorie Solberg, Associate Professor of Political Science at Oregon State University on executive power
  • Dan Tichenor, Philip H. Knight Chair of Political Science and director of the Program on Democratic Engagement and Governance of the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics at the University of Oregon on immigration and refugee policy
  • Shane Burley, journalist and filmmaker based in Portland, Oregon on protest, government repression, and the press
