UT-Austin Graduates Students From LBJ School of ‘Pubic’ Affairs: “Obviously, we are mortified. It’s beyond embarrassing”

Really have got the best and brightest at the University of Texas.

Susan Binford, assistant dean for communications at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, says the “pubic” typo was spotted after the programs were distributed at Saturday’s commencement exercises.

“Obviously, we are mortified. It’s beyond embarrassing.”

The program went through “lots of layers of approval” without any catching the error.

“As soon as we realized the mistake, everybody went into overdrive and we went to work to reprint it.” All grads will be sent new copies of the program.

“Graduates have already received apology letters from the dean,” says Binford, as well as an apology tweet, which misspells egregious.

Doris Kearns Goodwin was unavailable for comment.

Our deepest apologies to our 2012 graduate for the egregious typo in our commencement program. We are working to distribute new programs.
