BreakAways are group trips, led by IC faculty, which take place when classes are not in session. These trips have a specific focus and are from ten days to three weeks long. On average four different BreakAways are offered during any one academic year. Destinations are announced in March of the preceding academic year. In order to participate, students need to apply and also register for the respective course during the semester when the trip preparations take place.
BreakAway destinations for the 2016-17 academic year currently are the following, with more destinations to be added:
- Capital City of the World - VIENNA (May 23-31, 2017)
- Un-BELIZE-able! Sports and Culture in BELIZE (May 23--June 6, 2017)
- Pop Culture and Classical Arts in PARIS (June 1-11, 2017)
- Sustainable BOLIVIA (July 5-26, 2017)
