UNIVERSITY OF US

The University of US is a volunteer educational program for high school students established to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of the U.S. Constitution as it was originally envisioned by the Founders.

 

The program features speakers on The Federalist Papers, Articles of the Constitution, Amendments to the Constitution, Supreme Court Justices and Landmark Cases, The U.S. Court System, and American Heritage and Founders.

 

Each class includes presentations by prominent local, state, and/or nationally-recognized lecturers, enhanced by interactive activities to engage students in the subject matter. The University of US is the gateway to students' participation in the USCSF Scholarship competition.
