Bob Pleasants inducted into oldest student honorary society at UNC-Chapel Hill

Bob Pleasants, a doctoral student in the School’s Culture, Curriculum and Change program, was recently inducted into The Order of the Golden Fleece, the University’s oldest and highest honorary society. To be eligible for induction, a student must possess an exemplary character and have made a significant, lasting contribution to the University.

Pleasants has been involved with the Durham Crisis Response Center as a mentor to youth, a volunteer advocate and a staff member. As teen services coordinator, he presents a teen dating violence curriculum called “Save the Date” to all high schools in Orange County.

At UNC-Chapel Hill, Pleasants is active in campus-based organizations to raise awareness about violence against women, and has co-taught a course he helped develop called “Leadership and Anti-Violence Awareness.”
Pleasants was inducted at the 9th Annual Graduate Student Recognition Ceremony held Thursday, April 12 at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center on UNC’s campus.
