Susan Piland


Susan PilandManaging Editor, Brandeis Magazine

Susan edits, writes for and handles the day-to-day operations of Brandeis Magazine, the university’s flagship publication. She also edits and writes other high-level university communications.

Before coming to Brandeis in 2012, Susan was the executive editor of Northeastern University Magazine, earning many national and international awards, including top prizes from CASE and EdPress.

Earlier, she directed Northeastern’s publications department, creating and producing major print materials for admissions, advancement, the president’s office and other university clients. Her editorial and project-management chops were sharpened during her years as a senior editor in Houghton Mifflin’s college textbook division.

Susan grew up in the Tidewater area of Virginia, and her AB in English is from the College of William and Mary.

If marooned on a desert island, she’d want copies of “Bleak House” and “Lucky Jim,” a complete set of Rolling Stones albums and weekly delivery of the puzzles in the Sunday New York Times.
