Established in 2006, the Distinguished Instructor Award recognizes exemplary teaching, professional knowledge and standing, and outstanding commitment to students. This award celebrates the best of our instructors, promotes excellence, and acknowledges your personal role in supporting UCLA Extension’s important educational and public service goals. The awards ceremony took place last night at the Covel Commons auditorium at UCLA.
Only 12 individuals were selected across all the disciplines at UCLA Extension to receive this year’s award. Judith Corona was one of them–and it was well deserved!
Congratulations Judith! We are honored to have you as our instructor!

What students are saying:
“Judith makes color theory completely fascinating. Her lectures on the physics of color and the psychology of color, in combination with anecdotal examples and slideshow depictions of how color has been used in interior design throughout history, provided a comprehensive and multifaceted introduction to the topic. The creative philosophies she imparts (‘design is a process’ and ‘trust the method’) consistently resonate in this and other classes.”
“Judith is an amazing instructor. She is strict and picky but she really cares that every student invests as much effort as possible into his or her work and does the best she or he possibly can. She carefully checked each work and discussed it with us, she was helpful in making suggestions how to improve certain aspect of our work, but she never been pushy or disrespectful to our views and tastes. I am very happy with the instructor and from now on I decided to take each class that Judith teaches at UCLA Extension.”
