What is The Study?

The Gilman Study serves as a designated space for unique learning opportunities. With nearly 4,000 square feet of space on Parish’s Midway campus, The Study is a hub for professional growth and personal development programming for our parents, students, alumni and educators. Designed to complement Parish’s core academic and signature programs, The Study is a place where people can hone new skills, explore new topics or areas of interest, and have real-time access to the help they need. The Study’s personalized learning experiences are designed to help both students and adult learners thrive.

Why was The Study created?

The Study represents a natural evolution in Parish’s innovative thinking to promote learning experiences that feature high student engagement and facilitate the love of learning amongst people both within and beyond the Parish community. The Study provides a space for people to both grow their talents and pursue new knowledge and skills.

What programs will The Study host?

The Study will house the existing programs of Parish Virtual, Parish Lab, Parish Link and Parish Drives. The Study will also offer programs to learners of all ages on a wide range of topics, such as:

  • Personal growth and wellness
  • Leadership and strengths-based coaching
  • Academic topics (i.e. financial literacy and cyber security)
  • Arts programming (i.e. photography)
  • Opportunities for people to pursue certificates and credentialing in a wide variety of areas

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

It’s a question I dreaded hearing while I was growing up.  And, if I’m honest, it’s a question I still hate as an adult.  I love learning – I always have and suspect I always will.  Give me a new book to read, a new concept to learn, or a new skill to build, and I am a happy woman.  Do I have to commit to one area of expertise?  Do we really have to pigeon-hole ourselves into one area of interest?
