Project Rebound

Project Rebound is the academic support program for students who have been reinstated to the University from academic dismissal. Project Rebound students have already completed Project Success, which is the support program for students on academic probation for the first time. 

Building on the skills and information learned in Project Success, all students reinstated to the University are required to participate in Project Rebound. Illinois State wants to assist you in reaching good academic standing and Project Rebound is designed to help you do just that.

In Project Rebound, students attend a bi-weekly small group meeting where reinstated students and a success facilitator will develop session topics based on the group’s needs.   

The success facilitator will:

  • Tailor the meetings to address your unique academic needs and the needs of your group
  • Assist in developing and refining academic goals
  • Assist with major options for undeclared students
  • Motivation to do your best this semester and how to continue that success
  • Discuss strategies to help overcome common challenges students face
