What should I put on my bookshelves at work? Problem: I have no books. If I were to get some books, they should be related to student development/higher education administration.

My office came with a thing like this
with three shelves, all about three feet long. I work in higher education administration and I meet with students all day long in my office. I recently moved to a new city and sold all of my books before the move. I don't have anything from grad school -- I don't even have a dictionary! As a result, my bookshelf looks very, very sad. I am currently filling some of the space with a few binders, a few scholarly journals, and that's about it. I have plans to get a few pictures framed, and I might put a small shelf clock on it. That's all I can think of! I have no idea how to fill this space ..... should I buy some books? If so, which ones? Is it cheesy to just go out and get copies of student development/higher ed admin books? Maybe this is a good opportunity to do some essential reading? What are the must-have books/things that I should get?
