Dr. Rowland Miller, a psychology professor at Sam Houston State University, will be honored July 20 by the International Assocation for Relationship Research.

Miller will be presented with the IARR's Teacher Award, which is awarded every two years at the assocation's conferences held around the globe.
Miller, an alumnus of Cornell University and the University of Florida, says he is genuinely honored to receive the award.
"I'm just tickled to death," Miller said."To my very real delight, I found out this was my year.It's a wonderful recognition of me by my colleagues."
Though he is revered and respected for his classroom work, Miller attributes the IARR's decision to give him the award to his popular psychology textbook, "Intimate Relationships," currently in its fourth edition.
"What got me the award is the fact that I wrote a textbook that is well regarded," Miller said.
Miller has spent his entire teaching career at SHSU, starting as an assistant professor in 1978.He will be celebrating his 30th year as a Bearkat faculty member this fall.
"I missed my doctorate graduation because I was driving a U-Haul here," Miller said."But since I've been here, we've done nothing but grow and raise the bar.This has been a very friendly and supportive place to work."
Miller was in his sixth year of teaching at SHSU when he submitted the idea to create a psychology course based solely on how close relationships function.His course, Psychology 365: Close Relationships, is now one of the most popular courses in the psychology department, and has garnered Miller acclaim from students and colleagues alike.
"He's just a really engaging teacher," said Christina Davis, a student in Miller's current Psychology 365 class.
...
Miller first became involved in writing "Intimate Relationships" when Dr. Dan Perlman invited him to take part in revising the third edition in 2000.
...
By the time the book reached its fourth edition, Miller himself was the primary author.
Now, as the book is undergoing further revisions for its fifth edition, Miller finds himself writing it alone, a burden that he finds exhilarating.
"When this kind of writing goes well its thrilling, but its a monumental amount of work," Miller said."I'll probably end up with 700 new references by the time I'm done this time around."
Miller is currently preparing the fifth edition of "Intimate Relationships" for a possible Spring, 2009 release.
But even as writing has grown to be his primary source of renown and acclaim as an educator, Miller never lets go of his passion for the classroom.
"Classwork is easy and so much fun to me," Miller said."It just seems to come naturally."
Miller attributes his love of teaching, as well as his success, to his chosen field of study: close relationships.
"The Hubble telescope is up there helping us refine our understanding of the universe," Miller said.
