Coy L. May, a native of Wichita Falls, Texas, has been a faculty member at Towson University since the fall of 1979.  He received his Bachelor's degree from the University of Texas, his Master's degree from UCLA, and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Texas.

At Towson University, his primary teaching responsibilities are in algebra and topology.  He has developed a continuing program of research on compact Klein surfaces and has published 18 articles in mathematics research journals.  He participated in the Maryland Collaborative for Teacher Preparation, an NSF funded program of the University of Maryland system.  He also directed the first two honors theses written in mathematics.  Each of his honors students received the Joseph W. Cox Award for the outstanding honors student, a campus-wide award.  In addition, each student published the results of his honors thesis in a mathematics research journal, an unusual accomplishment for an undergraduate.  Dr. May has directed many successful Applied Mathematics Laboratory projects.
