USF president Judy Genshaft and state Rep. Seth McKeel discuss the future of staff at USF Poly.

The University of South Florida may be closing its Lakeland campus, but those employees will have jobs for at least another year.

That’s according to USF president Judy Genshaft, who says employees will stay on staff until at least July 1, 2013.  Some employees left a meeting last week worried they may lose their jobs as early as July 1 of this year.

USF Poly is closing its Lakeland campus as the school is transferring its land and buildings to create Florida Polytechnic University.
