To review the physical activity promotion efforts of Power 5 conference institutions' summer transition programs. The websites of Power 5 Conference and affiliate member institutions ( = 78) were systematically reviewed and information on summer transition programs pertaining to health were extracted. Most ( = 45, 57.7%) institutions had a summer transition program of some kind. Among those who had summer transition programs, 14 (31.1%) had a nonphysical activity health course (i.e. health and/or nutrition), while courses that incorporated a physical activity component were uncommon ( = 6, 13.3%). Only two institutions covered physical activity, nutrition, and health in at least one offered course. : There is an opportunity for tertiary institution-level summer transitional programs to expand coverage to address a currently unmet need for physical activity promotion while avoiding perpetuation of existing inequities.
