Project Rebound is a program that supports the
higher education and successful reintegration of formerly incarcerated individuals wishing to enroll and succeed at
the California State University. By connecting students with critical resources, Project Rebound constructs an
alternative to the revolving door policy of mass incarceration and increases community strength and safety.
Project Rebound’s John Irwin House (est. 2018) is the first
transformative housing community for formerly incarcerated university students in the United States. The Irwin
House provides holistic, healing, life-affirming reentry housing and wraparound support services to improve
academic, psychosocial, and employment outcomes for formerly incarcerated students.
Currently, 15 CSU campuses have Project Rebound programs working with formerly incarcerated students.
