“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)

UoN - Where are you?
"UNIVERSITIES rate below the banking and alcohol industries to be near the bottom of the pile when it comes to generating engagement on their Facebook pages."
And how did the University of Newcastle do compared to other universities?
"Out of the top 20 education performers, UNSW's Facebook page had the largest fan base. As of December, its 266,702 fans put it way ahead of second placed Macquarie University at 182,296. After the leading two, fan numbers fell steeply with Monash third with 81,967. In 20th place, the University of Newcastle had 22,580."
How will the University of Newcastle report this finding?
Will they state that the University of Newcastle is in the top 20 in the country (with less than 10% of UNSW)?
How much more money will they have to throw at UoN's advertising and marketing machine than they already do
