Research Interests

Professor Kwon’s research is largely informed by critical systems thinking and aims to theorize the role of learning in promoting diversity and whole-person inclusion. Specifically, he studies leadership and organizing principles that lead to the cultivation of safe to be vulnerable learning spaces in which people across power divides collaborate and develop as teams, organizations, and communities. He is concerned with the practicality of enacting critical ideas in practice and views emergent learning as a vehicle for inclusive and generative change. Professor Kwon also studies ableism and the inclusion of people with disabilities in education and the workplace.


Professor Kwon teaches in the areas of diversity, adult learning, leadership, and organization development. He enjoys helping his students develop an adaptive learning mindset to strengthen relationships and lead inclusively at work with genuine humility and curiosity.
