“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)

  1. The BBC just reported that "a German university has voted to strip Education Minister Annette Schavan of her doctorate after an investigation into plagiarism allegations."

    What is the UoN going to do about the plagiarists still flying high there at the expense of the exposers and they number quite a few.

  2. If there was an independent inquiry into bullying at the UoN, how many heads would roll? It would be a staggering number.

  3. A whole group of us will take class action against a very powerful senior manager who savagely bullied us and destroyed our lives through his draconian actions (efficiently aided by his army of informants and collaborators for their personal gains).

    We want justice from the UoN.
