German lecturer recognized for international efforts at UNT

Carmen Terry (right), principal lecturer of German, is the 2016 recipient of the Citation for DistinguishedCarmen Terry International Service.

Terry received the honor for opening at UNT an official testing center for the Zertifikat Deutsch für den Beruf (ZDfB), or Certificate in German for the Professions, and the Prüfung Wirtschaftsdeutsch, or Exam in Business German. She also has worked to internationalize curriculum. As a result of these endeavors, Terry developed two new upper-level German courses to prepare students for the examinations and working in professional German-speaking environments. Today, UNT is among the few universities in the U.S. that are equipped to be official exam centers.

Terry also organized UNT’s first German language study abroad program in 2007, and has offered the program many times since then. She also has received eleven international grants during her time at UNT. Additionally, her work has affected hundreds of UNT students since she arrived at the university in 1994.

Terry was nominated for the award by Marie-Christine Koop, professor of French and director of the French Summer Institute at UNT. Other nominees for the honor were Young Hoon Kim, interim chair of the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management, and Tao Zhang, associate professor of kinesiology, health promotion and recreation.
