Patricia F. R. Cunningham arrived at The Ohio State University 1997 as a freshman; she went on to earn three degrees, culminating in a Ph.D. in 2011. Cunningham was hired in a dual appointment in OSU's Poverty Solutions Collaborative and Office of Student Life, eventually transitioning to her directorship of Buckeye Civic Engagement Connections in the Office of Student Life. Cunningham discusses her activist role in general, particularly her focus on community engagement, including a project she started to aid in K-12 education in Appalachia, and the Buckeye Reach program, which targets disadvantaged youth in Columbus neighborhoods, as well as youth incarcerated in juvenile correction facilities.
