University Settlement embraces collaboration as an effective model to increase capacity, efficiency, and partnership.  Throughout the year University Settlement hosts or supports community-building events with its partners, sponsors, advocates, staff and the community at large.



Taste of Slavic Village


Our annual Taste of Slavic Village fundraiser has been invaluable in helping to provide crucially needed funding to support all University Settlement programs. 


The event, presented by the Third Federal Foundation, celebrates the history and culture of Slavic Village and attendees are able to enjoy an array of specialty foods from local restaurants with beverages courtesy of Great Lakes Brewing Company.


In addition, there are many diverse and exciting experiences, artwork and other raffle items to win in our silent auction.


This year will be the 9th Annual Taste of Slavic Village, and it is scheduled for October 4th at the beautiful and historic Sokol Greater Cleveland, Bohemian National Hall.

Father Daughter Dance


This annual event helps to strengthen the important bond between fathers and their daughters by inviting girls aged 5-12 along with their fathers or father figures to spend time together enjoying dinner, dancing, and music.


More and more schools and neighborhoods are recognizing the importance of having a father in the home, and one of the ways Broadway-Slavic Village highlights dads is the father-daughter dance.


This event is held in the spring of every year.

Senior Prom


It’s time for boutonnieres, corsages, prom dresses and tuxedos! The Prom used to be just for high schoolers, but not anymore. Everyone from local youth groups to retirement communities are joining in the latest senior living trend: senior citizen proms. It’s an opportunity for seniors to socialize, have fun and engage with their community.  Folks that are over the age of 65, have another chance at being crowned Prom King or Queen and revisit memory lane.


This year, we will be hosting the Fourth Annual Senior Prom — scheduled for September 21st at Bohemian National Hall.
