“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)

SHOCK NEWS - a Vice Chancellor staying to deal with the long term!

"Congratulations: To Victoria University VC Peter Dawkins who has signed on for another well-deserved five-year term. In an era when the sight of universities managers skipping merrily between different institutions makes them look like careerists and squanders institutional knowledge and identity, it is good to see longevity at the top of public institutions. And given the complete policy uncertainty that universities face longevity is a rare commodity."  The Australian
