The Jack Beyerl Emergency Aid fund provides financial assistance to Ball State students who experience accidents, illnesses, financial hardships, or other personal emergencies that negatively affect their ability to remain enrolled. Since 2013, $131, 384 in Emergency Aid has been used to assist 290 students with books, rent, utilities, medical bills, child care costs and so much more.

He began his tenure as a faculty in Counseling Psychology and then became Director of the Counseling Center. In 1964, he became Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students.
