Center for Human Organization in Changing Environments (CHOICE) was a research-education-action arm established by Pacific Lutheran University in 1969. Its function was to initiate processes and programs to enable many segments of an urbanizing society to participate in making choices which may lead to quality of life in the region. Dr. Robert Menzel served as the Director of CHOICE.
CHOICE was funded by a three-year grant from the Board of College Education of the American Lutheran Church, and served as the University's link with community action programs and agencies and played a major role in the Tacoma Area College Consortium (comprised of Pacific Lutheran University, University of Puget Sound, Fort Steilacoom Community College and Tacoma Community College). CHOICE provided channels for in creasing involvement by faculty and students in the community and aided in implementing the University's role as an agent of social change.
