Adding "class project" purpose
Following up on conversations from the dev and community calls about misclassified sites and groups. When a student is taking a course and has to create a site, they sometimes select the "teaching" purpose since the site is related to a class, which then adds the site to the courses tab even though it is not a course.
Do we want to consider adding a new purpose option for "class project" (or something along those lines) to minimize this misclassification in the future?

What is the technical lift on this?
Could we release this new purpose option in tandem with the release of the group auto-email to teaching faculty in order to deter students from selecting the "teaching" purpose in connection with class project? See https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/14777#change-64021

It should be as simple as adding one line of code to this function here: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/blob/983edc1a363067b7042eacd7a2d183fc23e703dd/wp-content/mu-plugins/cac-functions.php#L2004-L2018, but Boone would know more than me.
