For some of the University of Iowa's 14,000 employees, "out of office" isn't an automatic email reply—it's a professional reality. Although these staff members don't log hours at desks or lecterns, they do help keep Iowa's campus—and even the state of Iowa—running smoothly. And whether they are on a bus, in the air, or somewhere else entirely, they bring their best to this behind-the-scenes work. Here are five of their stories.
