Bob Pleasants inducted into Frank Porter Graham Honor Society

Bob Pleasants, a third-year doctoral student in the Culture, Curriculum and Change Program, was among 13 graduate students inducted into the Frank Porter Graham Graduate and Professional Student Honor Society on April 6, 2006.

Pleasants was recognized for his efforts over the past seven years to reduce men's violence against women on campus and in local communities. 

This fall, Pleasants will teach a three-hour course, which he co-founded, called LAVA: Leadership and Anti-Violence Awareness. The course will be taught at the School of Education and offered through APPLES (Assisting People in Planning Learning Experiences in Service), a student-led program at UNC-Chapel Hill that engages students, faculty and community agencies in service-learning partnerships. 

Named for the former president of the University of North Carolina system and North Carolina senator, the Frank Porter Graham Graduate and Professional Student Honor Society recognizes graduate and professional students who have achieved excellence and provided outstanding service to the University and community.
