Miss. public universities face budget reductions - Alexis Emerald Ware, Student Printz

The University of Southern Mississippi faces budget cuts following statewide university budget reductions. According to WJTV, Gov. Phil Bryant’s deduction in the allocations of funds to institutions of higher education has forced many universities to readjust their spending and figure out ways to maintain the operation of their institution. USM Provost Steven Moser said the decreased state funding combined with a decline in enrollment will result in a $3.5 million dollar decrease from the university’s budget, meaning $2.5 million dollars will be funneled directly from the Office of Academic Affairs. “We must acknowledge the reality that our fiscal situation reflects the current landscape and changes in higher education in this country,” Moser said. http://www.studentprintz.com/miss-public-universities-face-budget-reductions/
