Student Ambassadors Host Citizenship Week

September 14, 2017

By Chip Underhill

The New Hampshire Institute of Politics (NHIOP) and the Kevin B. Harrington Student Ambassador's Civic Engagement Committee are hosting events celebrating citizenship and Constitution Day.

The Civic Engagement Committee, a group of 25 ambassadors led by co-chairs Brandon Pratt '18 and Jack Landry '20, works to develop students' citizenship skills by planning nonpartisan programs to help students understand voting, learn about issues, volunteer, and turn out at the polls.

Events begin on Monday, Sept. 18 with a celebration of Constitution Day. Activities over the next two weeks will culminate in a naturalization ceremony, in which more than 50 individuals will be sworn in as United States Citizens at the NHIOP.
