“Systemic bullying, hazing and abuse generally are identified with poor, weak or toxic organizational cultures. Cultures that are toxic have stated ethical values that are espoused but not employed, and other non-ethical values which are operational, dominant, but unstated.

Such cultures thrive when good people are silent, silenced, or pushed out; when bad apples are vocal, retained, promoted, and empowered; and when the neutral majority remain silent in order to survive. Those who are most successful in such a toxic culture are those who have adapted to it, or adopted it as their own”. (McKay, Arnold, Fratzl & Thomas, 2008)

Bear Gryllis vs Callaghan Campus

Bear Gryllis has tried to survive Callaghan Campus!

He has taken on the mosquitoes, the lack of parking spaces, the difficulty of finding cheap food and drink.  He has also tried to get security to help him.....
Would he survive if he reported plagiarism at the University of Newcastle?
Would he survive if he spoke about misconduct at the University of Newcastle?
He would not just be lying on a bench - he would be gagged, lose his job in teaching survival skills, removed from campus, lose his health, his family and his friends.

He has some survival skills - but not enough to survive bullying at the University of Newcastle.
