In establishing the Gadlin Lecture Series in his honor, NIH officials noted Gadlin’s “big-picture approach” to ombuds work and said the lectures will “embody his ongoing commitment to scholarship, intellectual curiosity, creative problem-solving, and values of fairness and respect.” From 1992 through 1998, Howard was university ombudsperson and adjunct professor of education at the University of California at Los Angeles, where he was also director of the UCLA Conflict Mediation Program and co-director of the Center for the Study and Resolution of Interethnic/Interracial Conflict.

An experienced mediator, trainer, and consultant, he has many years’ experience working with conflicts related to race, ethnicity, and gender, including sexual harassment, and is often called in as a consultant or mediator in “intractable” disputes. With colleagues he has written Collaboration and Team Science: A Field Guide (2nd ed., 2018), “The Welcome Letter: A Useful Tool for Laboratories and Teams,” and “Mediating Among Scientists: A Mental Model of Expert Practice.” He is the author of “Conflict Resolution, Cultural Differences, and the Culture of Racism,” “Mediating Sexual Harassment,” and “The Activist Ombudsman.”
