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, 14 ​CSU campuses have Project Rebound programs working with formerly incarcerated students.
