University of Connecticut officials are holding the second of two forums to discuss potential tuition increases and other budget issues.
UConn Chief Financial Officer Richard Gray will make a presentation Thursday about the university's budget process, funding priorities, financial challenges and other topics.
He hosted a similar presentation Monday. They come as UConn trustees prepare to start discussing the 2012-13 budget.
The school raised tuition and fees by 2.5 percent this fall, citing a decline in state financial assistance and rising costs.
UConn officials have said tuition could increase 5 to 6 percent next year- and potentially again in coming years - to help hire faculty and reduce class sizes and enrollment backlogs.
Thursday afternoon meeting is scheduled to be held in the Konover Auditorium at Dodd Center on the Storrs campus.
