Dr. Susan Curzon joined the California State University, Northridge community as Dean of the Library in 1992.

The California State University, Northridge community has greatly benefited from Dr. Curzon’s time spent on campus, and we know her innovative leadership and work here on campus will continue to motivate students to pursue a career in Higher Education and Information Sciences. Dr. Curzon retired in December of 2010 after serving the campus and student body with dedication and faithfulness for eighteen years.
