    The ASUW Academics, Technology, and Sustainability Committee has been hard at work completing in depth research on this issue. Senator Josh Materi from the College of Arts & Science, the Chair of this Committee, has put together a Status Report which details this research. Please reference the Status Report from Senator Materi for the Committee’s recommendations regarding how to overhaul and/or improve the current plus/minus grading system here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxvHE7ovI2jQWVkxbTF0cG1SRWc/view?usp=sharing.
    The ASUW Student Government will continue to look at how to best address this issue moving forward. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the ASUW Student Government at asuwgov@uwyo.edu. We will periodically update this issue with any progress made.

    As a student very concerned about graduate school, I understand the desire for more discrimination between the best and the best of the best. Unfortunately I do not think this system works. While I agree with the previous comments about A students, I also think it is important to point out how unbalanced the system is. My major's department does not use the +/- system. This does not, however, mean I am more qualified for a job or a graduate school than a student with a different degree or even taking different electives that use the +/- system but are receiving the same grades. Despite this, our GPAs would tell a different story. The system is also not uniform among various colleges and universities. This means we are deterring prospective students by offering lower GPA possibilities. I strongly believe for our school to be the most attractive, effective, and fair that it can be, the +/- system cannot be used.

    The ASUW Student Outreach and Policy Committee has been hard at work completing more in depth research on this issue. Senator Kadi Cooley from the College of Arts & Science, the Chair of this Committee, has put together a Status Report which details this research. Please reference the Status Report from Senator Cooley for details regarding some recommendations of the Committee to improve parking on the University of Wyoming campus here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxvHE7ovI2jQTTJTQ09uT2ZYVEk/view?usp=sharing. The ASUW Student Government will continue to implement a few of their recommendations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the ASUW Student Government at asuwgov@uwyo.edu. We will periodically update this issue with any progress made.
