The University of Cincinnati's 24th President, Joseph Steger, has died. Steger led the university from July 1984 through September 2003. A release from the university says his 19 year term is the second longest in UC's history.
Steger came to UC in 1982 as Senior Vice President and Provost, recruited by then-president Henry Winkler. At the time, he was director of organizational development and human resources for Colt Industries.
