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.

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.

Re: Robin Craig

Robin Craig was cited in an article about Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency, in which the Sacketts are challenging the EPA's authority to regulate the use of their land under the Clean Water Act. Even if a given parcel (such as the Sackett's property) is not part of the "waters of the United States," activities on that parcel that result in pollution reaching regulated waters could be sufficient to subject such activities to federal regulation, she said. Please note this is a citation of a blog post by Craig on the American College of Environmental Lawyers website.
