|An Academic Agreement is understood as the pact, union or alliance between two or more parties with the aim of reciprocally combining collaboration efforts directed towards the construction, strengthening and support of a series of actions that benefit the involved academic communities in the short and medium term.
The main objective of Academic Agreements is to construct joint cooperation agreements that promote the development of research, teaching and extension as well as the exchange of scientific, cultural, social and traditional knowledge.
The Agreements can be framework or specific agreements:
They refer to agreements between two or more institutions with the aim of combining efforts based on common interests and missions.
They refer to a special agreement between two or more institutions with the aim of working on a specific topic that requires the definition of special conditions or regulations for its fulfilment. Specific agreements can be used to define reciprocal criteria, such as student mobility, teacher mobility, research, joint publishing, creation of programmes, etc.
The management of agreements is the administrative mechanism through which the signature and subscription of an agreement on academic cooperation is processed. It is necessary to follow the corresponding procedure and to consider using the model agreements. You can find the model agreements used by UPN in order to formalize a national or international agreement on academic cooperation under the following links:

|UPN GLOCALIZED: 11 AGREEMENTS SIGNED IN JULY 2019
In July 2019, Universidad Pedagógica Nacional
signed 11 agreements with national and international institutions. These agreements aim at continuing the construction of spaces for cooperation where we can participate and foster our mission under a perspective of Human Rights, support for indigenous populations, arts and culture in Europe, Latin America and Colombia, which helps to construct a GLOCALIZED UPN.
|Education for the conservation of natural ecosystems in Colombia
Parques Nacionales de Colombia (PNN) and UPN joined efforts to work together in the design and application of educational and pedagogical strategies that allow students to participate in the” education for conservation” programmes led by PNN throughout PNN’s system of national natural parks in Colombia.
The aim of this initiative is to facilitate pedagogical internships for students with populations and communities who live in the buffer zones and territories neighbouring natural parks. Thus, through their academic programmes, they can develop and put into practice pedagogical methodologies that favour the conservation, protection and management of protected ecosystems.
||Recognizing ethno-education and the rights of indigenous communities
With the strong intention of being present on a national level and bridging the gap between minority and majority societies in a territory, UPN signed an agreement of good will with Colombian indigenous associations in order to promote and develop educational activities that allow for the defense of the rights of indigenous peoples and communities in Colombia as well as for the recovering and conservation of ancestral and traditional knowledge. Consequently, academic agreements were signed with the Colombian National Indigenous Organization (ONIC) and with the National Organization of Indigenous Populations of the Colombian Amazon Region (OPIAC) in order to link the new indigenous generations to the professional training of educational and social leaders.
