University of Regina

A broad spectrum planetary institution providing education in all areas; its campuses are scattered all over Regina ( Regina / Spinward Marches 1910). Its greatest strengths are in the social sciences: history, sociology, cultural anthropology, public policy, and political science.

By law, Regina is the only university in the sector allowed to call itself the "U of R". This is a relic dating from when feudal requirements gave Regina, as sector capital and seat of the sector Duke, pride of place. This law is still on the books. However, its students and faculty breezily scorn this distinction and refer to the university simply by the world's name: "Regina".
