“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)

University of Newcastle and "military operations"
Caroline McMillen has described UoN's in her latest "From the VC's desk". The University of Newcastle is on a "reputation building campaign".
"The Marketing and Public Relations team are very proud of the results received to date with the initial phases of the research and reputation building campaign and were pleased to be able to wrap up 2013 with a short video showcasing some of the UON's successes and inspiring highlights in research and innovation."
This "campaign" continues the push for the UoN's "brand" with almost 30 staff members now in the uni's Pubic Relations and Media department.
How much of taxpayers' money is being thrown at advertising the University of Newcastle?
