If you could change one thing, what would you change?

optiMize is a supportive community for student innovators working toward a just and sustainable world.

We believe that college should be a time to take action on projects you're passionate about, whether that means urban farming, inclusive education, or virtual reality.

With the right mentorship and support, we believe anyone can learn to turn their ideas into impact. Our programs are designed to help you get started and to help you keep going.

We've partnered with the University of Michigan College of LSA to create a future where every student has a chance to identify challenges they're passionate about and take action to make an impact.


Stop waiting for someone else to change the world.  Ask yourself "why not me?"
