Steven Claus Beering (born August 20, 1932) served as president of Purdue University from 1983 to 2000. Previously, he was dean of the Indiana University School of Medicine for nine years. During his leadership, Purdue's main campus in West Lafayette, Indiana grew by more than 20 buildings. He replaced John W. Hicks and was succeeded by Martin C. Jischke. Steven Beering was well known for his opposition to financial earmarks. In his honor, the former Liberal Arts Education Building (or LAEB), was renamed Beering Hall. He also founded an eponymous scholarship that provides recipients with full tuition and fees, room and board, and expenses for their undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees.
