Universities across Canada are responding to the rise of “non-traditional” student in their enrolments through new and innovative programs, writes Wendy Glauser. The author notes that these programs often go against the grain of a university system that was not historically built to support students from such a multitude of backgrounds. However, Glauser chronicles the efforts of Dalhousie University, Queen’s University, Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Calgary, and Ryerson University in offering a number of programs that have already changed the lives of many non-traditional students.
