SINSI Spotlight: Alisa Tiwari '14, U.S. Department of Justice

November 1st, 2017


As a Princeton University undergraduate, Alisa Tiwari '14 evaluated New York City’s controversial stop-and-frisk program for her senior thesis. With a background in domestic policy, African-American studies, and urban studies, and drawing on her coursework in politics, policy analysis, and statistics, she spent countless hours analyzing police data, reviewing the relevant legal issues, and considering the perspectives of both officers and community members to assess the efficacy, constitutionality, and broader societal impacts of the practice.

Being accepted into the 2014 cohort of the Scholars in the Nation’s Service Initiative (SINSI), based within the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, provided Tiwari the opportunity to gain real-world experience in the field of law enforcement reform. Established in 2006, the SINSI graduate program combines a Wilson School MPA degree with a fully funded, two-year professional-level practical work experience in the U.S. government. Tiwari is expected to complete her MPA in 2020
