Recommendation Letter for Robert M. May
I have had the opportunity to work with Robert May for approximately thre e years. I have been his instructor in educational research and statistics courses. I advised Robert on his dissertation which he completed this past spring.
Robert is a very impressive individual in many ways. As an author he has written four books. Two have already been published. I am impressed by both the breadth and depth of Robert's scholarly work.
It is difficult to succeed in one area of scholarship. Robert is making an effort to work across two areas, psychology and religion. I believe that his work will provide a theoretical and historical perspective on the interrelations between the two fields of study that will raise issues for today and for future scholars.
At a more personal level I find Robert to be commutative, supportive colleague. He sets an example with the energy that he puts into his research. I know very few people who can get as excited as Robert when involved in research. He certainly spreads this excitement and enthusiasm to others.
I have encouraged Robert to consider returning to higher education. His teaching and research would be very valuable in almost any higher educational institution. I would certainly recommend Robert highly. If a more specific or personal recommendation is needed please feel free to contact me.
