What is Project Rebound?

Project Rebound is a program that admits students across the CSU system who are motivated to succeed in a field of study that leads to a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree or beyond. We are committed to meeting the needs of students who often face a wide array of challenges that have caused them to be left behind. We strive to provide each student with the individualized support that they need to succeed.
Project Rebound acts as a liaison with campus services and programs as well as community organizations in order to advocate for people on campus and in the community.  By offering resources and connections with supportive entities, Project Rebound attempts to help students with their basic needs so that, through higher education, they can:

- Cultivate skills in critical thinking and writing, oral communication, quantitative and ethical reasoning.

- Enhance their capacity for civic engagement and community leadership secure meaningful and gratifying employment
empower themselves, their families, and their communities.

- Reduce their participation in behavior that is harmful to self, family, and community, including drug abuse and violence.

- Humanize public attitudes towards currently and formerly incarcerated people in order to facilitate reintegration and eliminate collateral consequences of criminal conviction related to social stigmatization and marginalization.
