Professor Geitmann is the Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (AES) and Associate Vice-Principal (Macdonald Campus) of McGill University. Under her leadership McGill has positioned itself to be a leader and convener of stakeholders in food safety, food security, sustainable agriculture, and environmental stewardship. Since the legalization of cannabis in 2018, numerous research projects related to cannabis have been launched at the Faculty, and since 2020, the Faculty operates a graduate student training program (Quality Assurance and Quality Control for Cannabis) funded through a CREATE grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Under Dr. Geitmann's leadership the McGill Research Centre for Cannabis was established, a joint endeavor between McGill's Faculties of AES and Medicine.
