as acting director of the Philippine Department of Education and

She has been a guest

Korea, China and Australia, as well as the state of California and
Texas — on the topic of spiritual formation in children and
families. She is a founding member of a 1981, seven-family church

of the Society for Professors of Christian Education.
Hwang holds a bachelor's degree from Central Washington

education from Fuller Theological Seminary (1998) and a doctorate in

Hwang's promotion to the rank of associate professor was the
result of a recommendation process initiated by a committee of
her peers. The provost and dean also review requests for faculty
promotion and, upon endorsement, send the committee
recommendation on to the president for final approval.
