Nicholas Raichart has been a practicing organizational ombudsman for more than five years at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). As part of his practice, he provides dispute resolution and conflict coaching services to all members of the UCSD campus and health system. Raichart routinely addresses such issues as workplace hostility and harassment, supervisor-supervisee concerns, academic disputes and authorship conflicts, and intra- and inter-group relationships. As a member of UCSD’s Restorative Justice and Campus Safety and Security Advisory Committees, Raichart helps identify trends and patterns to bring early resolution to issues of heightened sensitivity. Additionally, he regularly conducts conflict literacy training to students, staff, and academic appointees.

Raichart actively works with his colleagues to help grow the organizational ombuds field, including serving as the International Ombudsman Association (IOA) Sponsorship Committee Chair.
