Project Rebound assists formerly incarcerated individuals seeking to enroll at Cal State LA with support. Project Rebound was started in 1967 by Professor John Irwin at San Francisco State University. The program is staffed by students who have had prior incarceration experiences. The program offers an alternative to the revolving door policy of the criminal justice system by offering a program, which encourages students to excel in a course of study. The program seeks to encourage full time students who are motivated to succeed in a field of a study which leads to a Baccalaureate Degree.
Project Rebound serves as a liaison and advocate with campus services and programs as well as with community organizations. By offering resources and connections with supportive entities, Project Rebound attempts to help students with their basic needs so that they can concentrate on their studies and achieve educational and personal empowerment.
