Who Will I Meet?

faculty

Dr. Gary Raduns, Department Chair and Professor of Mathematical Sciences

We are pleased to have Dr. Gary Raduns as Department Chair and Professor of Mathematical Sciences. Dr. Raduns received his Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences from the State University of New York at Binghamton. His particular interests are analysis, probability, and matrices over commutative rings. However, plan to spend a few extra minutes in his office if you ask about graph theory, fair division, or voting. When he isn’t occupied with activities related to teaching or learning mathematics he enjoys playing musical instruments, golfing, bowling, gardening, or just relaxing with his family. He is also a member of the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences and the Mathematical Association of America. Read more about Dr. Raduns.

Roberts' small class sizes have given me the ability to connect with all of the professors in the department. I have established relationships with all of them and they have worked personally with me to get the help I need.
