Project Rebound

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.

The Transformative Power of Higher Education

Project Rebound’s John Irwin House

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.
