A. Scott Hewitt, professor of chemistry and biochemistry, will leave his last class of the day Jan. 31 and run approximately three miles to present a talk on “Building a Sustainable Future” at Fullerton Community College.

The run is part of the community college’s participation in Focus the Nation’s “Global Warming Day Teach-In.” Hewitt will address what Cal State Fullerton, Fullerton College and other institutions can do to build a sustainable future, as well as how individuals can take part — such as walking or bicycling instead of driving.

FCC’s daylong “Teach-In” starts at 6:30 a.m. and ends with Hewitt’s presentation.

Hewitt’s last class ends at 3:45 p.m. in Room 146 of Dan Black Hall. His talk begins at 4:30 p.m. in the FCC Campus Theater near Lemon Avenue.

Hewitt, dressed to run, will complete his class and at about 3:55 p.m. run out through Dan Black Hall’s west door, turn north at the Nutwood Parking Structure, run between the Visual Arts and Performing Arts buildings, then westward across State College Boulevard on Dorothy Lane. He will turn right at Berkeley Avenue and left at North Lemon Street to the Fullerton College theater.

Hewitt chairs the Cal State Fullerton Academic Senate’s Ad Hoc Sustainability Committee, which recently presented a resolution to the senate urging that the campus increase efforts at sustainability in all aspects of campus life, including teaching and research. Hewitt has taken students on hikes in wilderness areas to show them natural environments and has been cited by U.S. astronaut Tracy Caldwell, a Cal State Fullerton alumna, as one of her mentors.
