Description:

Part of the International Education at Queen's Conference.

The linguistic diversity of Canadian university campuses is increasing. According to enrolment figures from 2021, international students, many of whom have English as an additional language, comprise roughly 14% of the Queen’s undergraduate and graduate student population.

This panel discussion explores faculty expectations around academic English at Queen’s and asks how we might balance concerns around needing a shared language for classroom discussions and assessment with the need to embrace the linguistic diversity of students.
