I think they’re having a shortage of space at DePaul at the moment and they were going through some rearranging of people. Some people, I guess were waiting and wanting to move offices and on top of that there seems (at least to me) to be a lot of new faculty and people hired this year too.
I have no point of comparison, since this is my first year here, but in a weak economy, bordering on depression, one would not think they would be hiring so much. I guess they’re above that. Anyhow, they took some time to find me a space and I was officeless, working from home all this time. Until yesterday. They assigned me an office and here it is.
