This study will explore North Indian international students’ perspectives on cultural insensitivity at a mid-sized, Canadian, university campus. Researchers will attempt to understand the nuanced experiences of racial bias faced by North Indian students, and will highlight the need for cultural awareness training initiatives for university personnel to make Canadian universities collaborative and inclusive spaces.
