Add faculty/staff ‘Office Location’ to directory listing (contact page).

Due to potentially inconsistent entry of this field values, the ideal location is end of the line after phone numbers.

From Meghan:
Students have come into the IKBSAS Dean’s office to ask the office number for faculty members. In some instances they have been waiting to speak to a Student Support Assistant for quite some time in our office to find out and office location for a faculty member so that they can speak with them in person. This is causing more students waiting to talk to staff in our office for a minor detail and is frustrating for our assistants and support staff.

The students find the contact directories on the department websites (for example: however, haven’t realized that the faculty a members name can be clicked on for further details

[Update: Basic proof of concept has been started in dev site. Would need review from UR. Side effect is that it will make directory listings longer overall. -JS/SQ]

[Update 2: Positive feedback from Nov 2019 Webcore meeting. Development to continue. Can proceed to be added to next update of directory plugin.]

[Update 3: Tested in verf and pulled into production Dec 9, 2019. Marked completed. -JS]
