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.
