Assistant Professor of Sociology, Dr. Annika Anderson and CSUSB Special Education Professor, Carolyn Eggleston, will launch Project Rebound at CSUSB this fall term. CSUSB is one of several CSU campuses given a grant worth $71,421 to pilot the program.
Project Rebound is a campus-based reentry program that helps formerly incarcerated students prepare, apply, enroll and graduate with high-quality degrees from California State University, San Bernardino. The program also acts as a liaison between networks throughout the campus at-large as well as throughout the community. Dr. Anderson will co-manage a student center designed to assist formerly incarcerated students with financial aid, admissions, and similar college services. By offering resources and connections with supportive entities, Project Rebound will help students concentrate on gaining expertise in their field of study and achieve educational and personal empowerment.
