Memorial Service for TU President Emeritus Steadman Upham

A memorial service for Steadman Upham, anthropologist and president emeritus of The University of Tulsa, will be held at 10 a.m. Aug. 19 at the Donald W. Reynolds Center on TU’s campus. Members of the community are invited. Doors open at 9:00 a.m.

Those unable to attend may view the ceremony live over the internet. The stream begins at 9:55 a.m. on both youtube and livestream.

Community engagement and service learning are cornerstones of Upham’s legacy. He led the university in establishing the True Blue Neighbors initiative – a far-reaching service program that partnered TU closely with the Kendall-Whittier neighborhood and with service organizations throughout Tulsa. True Blue Neighbors saw annual increases in volunteer participation from the TU family, and it continues as the primary vehicle for TU’s community engagement.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a gift to The Steadman and Peggy Upham Endowment for Community Service and Outreach at The University of Tulsa through or 918-631-2565.
