Mentor (Rhetor IV)
The University of Mentor (UM) is a public research university on Mentor (Rhetor IV), United Empire of Earth (UEE). The school is one of several prestigious universities located in the Rhetor system. Established shortly after the planet was terraformed, it is the oldest and largest institute of higher learning on Mentor. Its physical sciences and history programs are highly competitive, with 5 to 10% admissions rates for new students. UM’s reputation for rigorous, demanding study coupled with Mentor’s frigid environment may factor into the school’s relatively high dropout rate. The University of Mentor is responsible for maintenance and research efforts connected with the UEE's universal seed vaults.
