2012 commencement programs for the LBJ School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin include an unfortunate typo:

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[one] catching the error.
