“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)

"Shifting sands"

Re Suspended Academic

Professor Jin and his lawyer are finding that
"the university had changed the way it described the case against his client"

Also Jin's lawyer stated that "It's the shifting sands, the movable feast, that has characterised the way the university has dealt with this since the beginning of the year".

Many of us have experienced the "shifting sands" and the ever-changing methods of the university.

Many of us have had similar experiences when dealing with the university.

Will we ever know what is really happening?
