Several of his trainees commented on Dr. Geiger's devotion to the success of his students. One trainee notes, "Dr. Geiger is committed to the overall development of his students. He is very supportive, understanding and patient. As my committee chair, Dr. Geiger has spent many hours guiding my research process and offering support. I have also seen his detailed attention and hours of devotion given to the work of my peers and their projects. He fosters progress, encourages academic scholarship as well as service learning, and provides thorough feedback. One of Dr. Geiger's best attributes is that he leads by example. He is well-respected among his peers and within the community. He requires his students to require more of themselves; excellence therefore becomes a standard, not the exception."
