My daughter sent me photos of this office plant in the hopes of 1) getting an ID and 2) finding out whether it will regrow if it is cut. It is growing too tall for its space.

It looks like bamboo to me, but that's just a guess.
I would appreciate an ID and any advice on how to cut it and maybe root it without killing it. Thanks!

it looks like a very sad Dracaena or Corn plant.

I agree, Dracaena
Corn Plant (Dracaena fragrans)
Mass Cane (Dracaena fragrans 'Massangeana')

The canes/branches can be pruned back to keep a desired height. New growth will emerge just below the cut. The cut stems can be rooted for additional plants.
