FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — The leader of the University of St. Francis says $15 million in construction projects will transform the school's Fort Wayne campus.

The private Roman Catholic college held a groundbreaking ceremony Monday for construction of a free-standing chapel and the expansion and renovation of its science building.

University President Sister Elise Kriss says both projects are overdue for the 2,300-student school.

Plans call for the 250-seat chapel to be finished by the end of 2018, becoming the tallest building on campus. The Achatz Hall of Science project will start with construction of a new glass atrium and lounge areas, followed by renovation of the current 49-year-old building. Its completion is expected in 2020.

The projects are part of the school's current $22.7 million fundraising campaign.
