Jang-Hwan Kwon is manager of administrative systems for Concordia's Instructional and Information Technology Services, where he has worked in an administrative role since 1999.
Jang earned a graduate diploma in 1996 and an MSc in computer science in 2003, both from Concordia. He also holds a bachelor's degree in engineering (transportation) from McGill University.
Jang has exhibited his dedication to the university in several ways. He created two endowments -- the Jang-Hwan Kwon Award in Computer Science and the Richard K. Dimond Memorial Award in Physics -- to help bring to Concordia talented students who would otherwise be unable to afford university. He also supports a number of Concordia-based fundraising initiatives such as the Community Campaign and Student Emergency Food Fund.
His greatest passion remains the Concordia Shuffle, the university's annual walkathon. Jang has been a member of the Shuffle advisory committee for many years and became its chair in 2011.
