Heather Townsend
Curriculum Process Specialist
Instruction and Student Learning
Morris Memorial Building 205E


As the Curriculum Process Specialist, I assist faculty with all curriculum needs and questions. I help to maintain eLumen, Colleague, and the Chancellor’s Office Inventory. I work closely with the Faculty Curriculum Co-Chair to plan and organize all Curriculum Committee meetings. I assist in producing the Modesto Junior College catalog and catalog addendum that is posted once a year to our Modesto Junior College website. You can contact me if you have curriculum and catalog questions, to ask about the latest laws and regulations, or to receive eLumen curriculum technical support.


I have been a part of the Office of Instruction since 2009. I take great pride in saying that I started my employment at Modesto Junior College as a Student Worker while attending the college to receive my A.A. in Office Administration. Shortly after becoming a Student Worker I became a part-time employee on a contract basis. Several years later I became a permanent full-time employee as the Curriculum Process Specialist. I am a resident of Oakdale, California and love working for Modesto Junior College.
