Abstract

Today, classrooms in Canadian universities are probably very different from what they would have looked like fifty years ago. With students from all over

the world, and the children of immigrants a constituent part of the classroom, diversity is no longer a new phenomenon. This is even more so in many

graduate schools. There are many kinds of diversity within a university, including gender, ethnic backgrounds, religions (or lack of religion), and immigration

status. In this article, I will focus on diversity as it relates to international and immigrant students.
