Personable and professional, Professor Resnikoff demonstrated an ability to encourage rigorous thinking regarding the texts and how they apply to the Core as a whole and beyond.

In asking provocative questions and treating students as intellectual equals, Professor Resnikoff facilitates an environment well-suited to active engagement with Core material and its consequences."
