SGA forum planned

A forum to discuss the proposed plus/minus grading system will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday in Downing University Center, Room 305.

Scheduled guests for the forum include Provost Barbara Burch and economics professor Brian Strow, who proposed the grading system last month at a University Senate meeting.

Strow said he plans to listen to the students’ concerns and answer questions.

“As a result, they’ll understand why I’m proposing it, and why I think it will benefit them,” Strow said.
