“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 Rankings
"Something in the water: On further looking into students using sex to earn money the Newcastle Herald found that “at the end of 2013 there were 171 University of Newcastle students registered to a specialist online dating website called Seeking Arrangement that matches students with a ‘‘sugar daddy’’ to fund their education.” The website told the paper that the Newcastle had the third highest number of members on the site of all tertiary institutes in Australia. It doesn’t identify the other two, but HW is all ears." (emphasis added)
