Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$Users = Import-csv c:\Users.csv

Should work just fine. Do you get error messages, and if so, which ones?
Does your csv have a header line with a column named "UserName" and one named "Department"?
Is the UserName the user's SamAccountName attribute?
Do you have enough permissions to change the department? In particular: are you running this in an elevated console?
