Creating a Courses Project Site

A project site can be used to collaborate with colleagues inside and outside of the Pepperdine community for group work, committees, and research projects. It offers the same tools as an academic Courses site such as resources and email communication, but is not limited to a specific academic term. All Pepperdine students, faculty, and staff can create a project site.
