Constitution Week

On September 17, 1787, the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia held their final meeting, and signed the Constitution of the United States of America. The University of Central Missouri commemorates this defining moment in American history with a series of events and activities.

As the 225th anniversary of the signing of the first amendment, the 2016 constitution week will be a series of multidisciplinary programs celebrating the freedom of religion afforded to us by the constitution

One Campus One Book

One Campus, One Book is a common reading program at UCM whose purpose is to engage all of our students and campus community in a shared, academically-driven experience. This initiative is intended to bring meaningful conversations on relevant, complex subjects beyond the classroom and into students' daily lives. The common reading program will culminate in a visit by the book's author to our campus on November 10.
