Correction: University of Texas doesn't have school of 'pubic' affairs

Officials at the University of Texas' Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs are apologizing for an embarrassing typo on a commencement program.

Guests to Saturday's ceremony were handed a printed program that read, "Lyndon B. Johnson School of Pubic Affairs."

"Obviously, we are mortified. It's beyond embarrassing," Susan Binford, the school’s assistant dean for communications, told TheBlaze.com, which published a photograph of the typo. “As soon as we realized the mistake, everybody went into overdrive and we went to work to reprint it.”


The school also issued an apology on Twitter that said, "Our deepest apologies to our 2012 graduates for the egregious typo in our commencement program. We are working to distribute new programs."

Media blogger Jim Romenesko also mentioned that the school misspelled egregious as "eggregious" in their apology tweet. That tweet has since been corrected, according to NBCDFW.com.

Texas Tribune editor Evan Smith was first to post the image to Twitter.
