I wanted to see how other private universities handle faculty office assignments. We have office suites for each department and when they hire new faculty, sometimes there is not an available office within the suite. This means that new person has to be located in a vacant office in another department or possibly in another building. We have a department that is wanting to add two new offices in their department which means converting some adjacent space into the offices. Have any of you had that situation and how do you handle it? We are thinking about faculty sharing certain offices and having space allocated to meet with students as needed. Do you have a committee that oversees office assignments and keeps up with the inventory or does your academic life staff handle this? Thanks for your input. Steve Long, Furman University
