    Changing Trajectories through Education

: Social Science Building, Room 129A 

Project Rebound was originally established in the late 1960s at San Francisco State University by the late Dr. John Irwin. He realized personally how education could change the trajectories of those involved in the Criminal Justice System. Education would help them establish lasting pro-social pathways back into their communities as productive members of society and essential components to reducing recidivism and victimization. This program at San Francisco State has expanded and can be found at 14 CSU campuses currently, from Humboldt to San Diego.

We are a growing cohort at California State University Fresno. If you have been involved in the Criminal Justice System and feel education is the tool you want to use to change your pathway in life, please contact us. We are a student support services program that assists with those already taking courses at Fresno State as well as those who wish to attend. We can assist you in many ways as you navigate the higher education system. 

We are working remotely, but we are still here to help! Please call 559-278-2313 or email us at
