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.
A memorial service for the late Joseph A. Steger, the second-longest serving president of the University of Cincinnati, will take place on campus on June 5.
Steger died May 9 at the age of 76. He served as UC's president from July 1984 until his retirement in September 2003.
The memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 5 at the Patricia Corbett Theater at the College Conservatory of Music on the University of Cincinnati's main campus. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m.
