Academic Program Proposals

The Academic Program Proposals Sharepoint site is your "one stop shop" to guide you through the program proposal and approval process. Here you will find instructions and templates needed to develop and submit your proposal for approval using the new electronic approval process. The process is designed to provide many benefits including automatic advancement to the next approver, ability to see the status of a proposal at each stage in the approval process, and a document archive.  You will need to log in using your Pacific ID to see and use the materials on the Sharepoint site.
