In the September 2003 AAG Newsletter, she was mentioned by the AAG President and Council as one of the six scholars in the Plenary Session who "are shaping the development of the discipline in important ways."
This past year, Dr. Kwan has been recognized with the Edward Ullman Award from the Transportation Specialty Group at the Association of American Geographers meeting in Denver for her outstanding contributions to transportation geography. She has also been recognized as a Distinguished Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences and a Huber Fellow at the Ohio State University - both granted based on her outstanding scholarship.
