BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The University of Vermont has broken ground on a $104 million STEM - science, technology, engineering and math - complex that will include two new buildings for classrooms, science labs and meeting space.

It’s UVM’s largest capital project to date.

UVM President Tom Sullivan said the groundbreaking on Friday was a transformative day for the university, Burlington, the state of Vermont and well beyond its borders.

Gov. Peter Shumlin thanked Sullivan for making the project a priority.

The construction starts this summer and will take place in three phases over four years.

UVM expects to increase the number of its STEM majors by 50 percent over the next decade.
