No Office

My No Office Experiment is an interesting blog post about a campus administrator going without an office in order to be closer to his department. I applaud his desire for visibility and what he has learned as he traveled to the offices of colleagues around campus, but I'm not sure how it would work in the long run. I wholeheartedly believe that administrators need to be visible and move around campus regularly. How else are you going to get the pulse of the school? However, unless you can guarantee conference room space when you need it for meetings with outside vendors or confidential phone/Skype sessions, it seems to me that having your own office, even a small one, would be beneficial.
