Memorial honors former UC president Steger
The University of Cincinnati celebrated the life and legacy of its 24th president with a memorial service Wednesday afternoon. Joseph Steger died May 9 at the age of 76 in Cincinnati.
His 19-year term (1984-2003) is the second longest in the university's history. He's credited with directing a rebirth of UC's campus through the adoption of the Campus Master Plan launched in 1989, and with increasing UC's renown for fiscal responsibility during his tenure.
