Under Statue XI, the University Code of Discipline, the Proctors' role includes acting as the officers who ensure that disciplinary regulations are enforced. Doing so includes taking steps to:
- enforce, and prevent any breach of, Statute XI
- investigate any complaint that a University member has committed a breach
- identify the person responsible for any such breach.
Less serious matters may be decided on at a Proctors' Disciplinary hearing. However all other matters dealt with under the University's disciplinary procedures will be heard by the University's Student Disciplinary Panel.
Please see University Student Disciplinary Procedure: Non-Academic Misconduct for more detailed information.
The University is committed to providing a safe, supportive environment for all students, and there are a number of services available to students to provide support to them during their studies at the University. The Oxford Student Website offers a comprehensive view of the welfare services and resources available to students, and links have been provided under the "related documents" section of this site.
Please note: complaints about supervision, teaching or other University services should be pursued under the University Student Complaints Procedure, whilst complaint about misconduct by staff should be pursued under the Harassment Policy or, in other cases, made to the relevant Head of Department.
