“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 - steam/water/sex/sugar daddy?
"Steamy:The Newcastle Herald reports that a Newcastle University student has been counselled after using the library to film a pay per view sex show of herself. “Parts of the library were ordered to be steam cleaned after the incident,” the paper reports. It must have been some show."
Is she still permitted to continue studying at the university?
Are those members of staff who sexually harassed student still allowed to work at the university?
Of course they are, along with academics who committed other forms of misconduct. They are protected by all levels of Newcastle University management right to the top.
