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.
New research from the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center finds kids who live near or attend school near a major highway or interstate have an increased risk for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) because of the traffic- related pollution.
Lots of kids could be at risk
Studies have shown 40% of children attend school within 400 meters of a major highway. Another 11% of the population in the U.S. lives within a 100 meters of a four-lane highway.
A power outage early this morning cut off electric service to the University of Cincinnati main campus and the UC Medical Center, but it was restored before noon.
The campus and UC Medical Center were without power from shortly after 8 a.m. until 11:20, according to tweets from the university and UC president Santa Ono. The hospital kept operating on a back-up power system.
The university has its own power grid which is fed electricity by Duke Energy. It is not known what caused the outage at the UC substation.
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.
