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.
