LONG BEACH, Miss. (AP) - Officials with the University of Southern Mississippi expect the budget cuts slated for the next school year to have little impact on the school’s Gulf Park campus in Long Beach.

The University of Southern Mississippi is facing about $5.9 million in cuts for the fall of 2015, including about $2.1 million in administrative cuts and cuts of $3.8 million to academics.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1CoYo9M ) Gulf Park campus administration will see a decrease of $30,357. But there will be no layoffs at the Long Beach campus and there will be no cuts to classes offered.

Spokeswoman Jenny Tate says they expect the impact to the Gulf Park campus to be minimal.

Officials say there were few layoffs university-wide and in most cases department heads simply left open positions empty.
