University Of Texas Red-faced Over 'Pubic Affairs' Typo

Posted: Updated:
Oops. | Twitter

An apology has been issued after a university published a commencement listing for forthcoming graduates of the Lyndon B Johnson School Of Pubic Affairs.

The University of Texas programme went to print without a murmur and was distributed this weekend, presumably to much mirth.

Susan Binford, the school’s Assistant Dean for Communications, told media critic Jim Romanesko: “Obviously, we are mortified. It’s beyond embarrassing.”

An apology was hastily made via Twitter – unfortunately misspelling “egregious” – although this was hurriedly corrected.

Binford added: “Graduates have already received apology letters from the dean.”
