Gary D. Glenn, an expert on constitutional issues, will present a talk coinciding with Constitution Day at Rockford College on September 17 at noon in the college’s Maddox Theatre.

Glenn, whose talk is entitled, “Does the Constitution Still Matter? And, if so, how?" is distinguished teaching professor emeritus of political science at Northern Illinois University. In this lecture, he discusses the U.S. Constitution as ratified in 1787 with the idea of “the living Constitution,” a view shared by many that the justices today are at liberty to “give meaning” to the original text. Increasingly, he says, “living constitutional law” matters more than the Constitution.

The talk is free and open to the public though a ticket is required. Contact the Rockford College box office at 815-226-4100 for a ticket and information about future lectures.
