And, as a bonus, the song has clearly defined gender roles.

That surprises me; my impression was virtually every college in the country has a policy by now strongly encouraging professors to leave the office door open unless a student wants it closed. I would've assumed for staff it's the same way. (This is for the safety of faculty as well, BTW; we do get deranged students every now and then...)

I would actually want to hear that version of U2 .

(Also, I know that Charlie Rich song. And now it's stuck in my head, too. Thanks.)

Maybe it helps that the front of his office is glass? I've worked here for 10 years so maybe we've been "grandfathered" in (and incidentally my boss is the same age as my dad and I've always seen him as sort of a father-figure). We used to conduct one-on-ones at the coffee shop but when my boss finally got an enclosed office with a door, we switched it to there since the coffee shop can be really loud and distracting at times and not very private if we are discussing issues that shouldn't be "leaked" around campus yet. Some of the stuff we talk about is best behind closed doors in a sound-proof office. I'm meeting with him in five minutes...

We do have pretty proactive policies on sexual harassment and HR offers extensive training. We've sacked two professors in two years for relationships with students (consensual does not matter here).

I believe it's too late. (see Achtung Baby era photos of the band in drag. . .)

Seriously though. . .I follow a pretty strict open door policy. Just today I had an after school meeting over ice cream with a female student of mine, and I made sure the door to the classroom was open and that there was a clear line of sight between where we were sitting and the school secretary's desk across the hall.

You can't be too careful these days.
