HOW TO USE THE ROPAPP  
 

Note: if you are designated as "Departmental Chair" in the ROPAPP and wish to propose a project you will have to change your "role" in the system in order to sign the ROP Contracts for your students.  To do this you will need to:

  • Select "Admin" in the menu options at the top of the page.
  • Select "My Roles" to change your role in the system from Departmental Chair to Instructor.  This will allow you to sign your ROP Contract(s) as the instructor for the project.
  • Be sure to return your role as "Departmental Chair" once you have completed signing the necessary ROP Contracts.

Project List:

  • A listing of your project proposals with their status appears under this heading.
  • In order to create a new proposal select the “Add New Project Proposal” link at the top of this page.  Here you will be asked to complete/submit your project proposal. 
  • Once you have saved your proposal an automatic email message will be generated to prompt the Chair for approval.
  • You can submit a duplicate proposal from any of those listed above; this feature allows you to replicate and add/change information in a previous proposal to be submitted to the Chair for approval.
