Diploma Spelling Error by Northwestern's Medill School

June 23, 2014

Several years ago many students and alumni of Northwestern University's famed Medill School of Journalism objected when it changed its name to the Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications (yes, there's no "and" in the name). Given that many alumni didn't want "integrated" to be part of the name, some of the newest Medill alumni (those in the honors program) were amused to find that their diplomas had a typo on the word "integrated." Jim Romenekso's journalism blog has the photograph of the mess-up, and a quote from a Northwestern spokesman that “students are mostly taking it with good humor."
