The Need for Social Change
Dr. Patricia Cunningham, a.k.a. “Dr. Patty”, was a whirlwind of positive energy. Her life’s mission was to empower Ohio State students and community partners to become change agents through the Office of Student Life “Social Change”. She helped individuals, families and entire communities facing poverty and its consequences through mentorship, leadership development, access, and neighborhood engagement.
"Patty had a level of energy that is literally undefeated."
"Dr. Patty is one of the heroes. She embodied what it truly meant to serve and to be committed to service as her life's work."
"Patty was larger than life. She was loud and confident. Talked to everyone. She just literally lit up a room."
