The student leaders making it all happen.
optiMize is a partnership between a student organization and full-time university staff. Our Core Organizing Team is the team of students who organize the optiMize Challenge, collaborate with optiMize staff to design new programs, recruit new people to our community each year, promote stories from the optiMize Community, and more.
