Dr. Albig taught at Radford University from Fall 1966 until Spring 2003. He served as chairman of the department from Fall 1977 until Spring 2000. These days, Dave is an avid golfer and remains one of the best extended joke tellers of all time.  Dr. Albig had the following to say recently.

“The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has a long history of service to Radford University. Service includes developing strong majors in mathematics, statistics, and computer science; general education courses; and courses such as Business Calculus designed to meet the needs of other departments. The department’s faculty have always placed helping students as their number one professional responsibility.”

As an example of this dedication, the first faculty endowed scholarship at Radford University was established more than thirty years ago by Drs. Albig, Hansard, and Milton of the Mathematics and Statistics Department. Currently the department awards two endowed scholarships (the Albig scholarship and the Milton scholarship) to deserving students.
