Title
Lessons from the Fabrikant File: The Complete Report
Abstract
On August 24, 1992, Dr. Valery I. Fabrikant, an associate professor of mechanical engineering, killed four colleagues and wounded a staff secretary at Montreal's Concordia University. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. Concordia commissioned two independent committees of inquiry to investigate the issues between Fabrikant and the school's Engineering department leading up to the murders. The author conducted one of these inquiries. He was commissioned to study Fabrikant's employment history and related human resource issues at Concordia University. He documented years of behavioural problems by Fabrikant. In addition, he identified problems common to university environments, where disruptive behaviour is sometimes excused under the mantle of academic freedom and because many academics have little experience as managers.
