Signing the UMAP Pledge of Agreement (PoA) document is a  requirement of joining the consortium.  The PoA document has been signed by every member institution.  The agreement outlines the basic rules and expectations for participation in UMAP programs.  It is not possible to change or amend the language in the agreement – it must be signed in its original form.  If you have questions about the Pledge of Agreement, please contact your National Secretariat or the International Secretariat.
