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.
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 utulsa.edu/giving or 918-631-2565.
