'First Amendment on Campus' Authors to Speak at ODU on Constitution Day, Sept. 21

Old Dominion University's annual Constitution Day on Tuesday, Sept. 21, will feature the co-authors of the book "The First Amendment on Campus."

Lee E. Bird, vice president of student affairs at Oklahoma State University, and Mary Beth Mackin, assistant dean of students at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, will appear at an open forum from 12:30-2 p.m. in the Rectors' Room of Webb Center, and deliver the keynote lecture at 7 p.m. in Chandler Recital Hall of the Diehn Fine and Performing Arts Center.

In 2004, Congress passed a provision mandating that every school and college receiving federal money must teach about the Constitution annually.

This year's event, sponsored by ODU's College of Arts and Letters, Division of Student Affairs, Legal Resource Center and Student Government Association, focuses on the First Amendment.

Interested students and members of the ODU community are invited to attend the open forum. Lunch will be provided. The general public is also invited to hear the evening keynote address by the two authors.

A reception will precede the address in the Diehn Center atrium.
