On Wednesday 15 March Professor Alis Oancea concluded her term as a Pro-Proctor of the University at a ceremony at the Sheldonian Theatre.
The office of Proctor dates from at least 1209. Oxford’s two Proctors and the four Pro-Proctors who deputise for them are senior academic officers of the university who ensure that the University operates according to its statutes. They also help officiate University degree ceremonies and perform a range of other ceremonial functions on behalf of the University. They are elected by the colleges.
