Alfred University has started to receive multiple fraudulent claims for unemployment benefits for employees who remain working. These are not coming from actual Alfred employees but rather are part of a criminal enterprise that is seeking to steal funds from the State of NY and Alfred University and is not just aimed at our employees but thousands across the United States. If you receive a notice from the NYS Department of Labor showing that they have received a claim for benefits in your name and you continue to work please file a "Fraud" complaint at
You may also be the victim of Identity theft and may visit the Attorney General's website at: for information about protecting yourself from this crime.
Alfred University is disputing these fraudulent claims as they are received but your help is vital to successfully combat this crime. Please contact Mark Guinan at 607-382-0468 if you have questions about this problem.

Hugh “Woodie” Lange, retired Alfred University controller, passes away

Hugh "Woodie" Lange, who enjoyed a 28-year career as controller at Alfred University before retiring in 1998, passed away on Sunday, June 21, at Wentworth Senior Living Facility in Portsmouth, NH, following an extended illness.

A native of Belle Vernon, PA, Woodie earned a bachelor's degree from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA, and an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. After working at the Federal Reserve Bank in Pittsburgh and the business office at Carnegie Mellon, Woodie was appointed to the controller's position at Alfred University in 1970.

Woodie retired from Alfred University in 1998. He loved his home in Alfred, where he raised five children, and remained a close member of the Alfred University community after his retirement. For health reasons, he spent the final years of his life in Portsmouth with his wife of 16 years, Susan "Sue" Clinger Lange.

The family will hold a private ceremony, arranged by the Remick and Gendron Funeral Home.
