WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue University has announced that former President Dr. Steven Beering, who expanded and diversified the West Lafayette campus during his 18-year tenure, had died.
He was 87. Purdue didn't disclose the circumstances of Beering’s death, but current President Mitch Daniels confirmed to WLFI-TV that it was not from COVID-19.
Beering went to Purdue in 1983 after serving as dean of the Indiana University School of Medicine and director of the IU Medical Center in Indianapolis.
