How humiliating is it for a respected university to make a typo on an official document like this? In PR, we harp on the necessity for accuracy -- proper grammar, spelling, facts and order of presentation. We make mistakes, but we try to catch them quickly and move on. It appears that Northwestern will need to do the same and reissue diplomas. One wonders how many pairs of eyes looked at the text before it was printed. The university can be faulted if it was only one person. I suspect it won't happen again. Next time they will use a spelling checker.
