Esteemed Regent & Fellow Scholars,
Allow me to introduce myself, I am Eiric S. Börnatfiglheu, and am a Fellow of the College of St. Leibowitz in the Talossas. We are a private college currently chartered in the Republic with a mission towards service to the entire Talossan community. As such, I am hoping to establish links between our own College, which is primarily a research institution, and the University of Talossa.
I think that these links could take a number of forms, not only cross enrollment in classes, but also conferences and symposia between the two schools.
One of my great dreams would be a Talossa-wiki of our history and culture. Done collaboratively between our schools as well as various other sources (Royal Archives, Republican Library, CUG, L'icastola, etc), we could finally get down to ironing out our national history in a systematic and cohesive way as well as communicating our culture to the outside world.
But that's for another day. At current, Greetings!

Welcome and we look forward to the addition of another scholastic mind to help grow and improve our (joint) institution(s) of higher education. I will make it a point to alert the Regent of the University about your arrival, and I am sure she will welcome you!

Greetings and thanks for helping to build the bridge between our two institutions. I feel that collaboration in the form of athletic competition, scholarly conferences or symposia, or any other means are wonderful ideas! Another idea is to establish a scholarly journal to which citizens can submit papers pertaining to our history, culture, and language. This could be one step toward the end-goal of a Talossa-wiki.
I hope that this is just the first of many correspondences that will unite our two colleges.

Now, St. Leibowitz is primarily a research institution, as opposed to a teaching one. At least as currently we operate.
I think that a journal might very well be a good idea. Also, St. Leibowitz is interested in establishing a law school, in the hopes of creating a greater diversity of jurisprudence. But that is something for another day.
What is the condition of Talossan scholarship here in the Regipats?
