SFU Diversity Conference: Learning Together 2014 “in-difference: conflict and diversity”
Simon Fraser University, Surrey Campus

From Kindergarten to postgraduate studies, we are living in the new mode of difference. A critical question, however, is whether all this diversity is starting to look the same.

This year’s theme, “in-difference: conflict and diversity,” celebrates how our work and ideas can contribute to a better understanding of diversity.
