The Stanford Daily referenced HUMRTS 104: Introduction to Disability Studies and Disability Rights, a new course launched by the Handa Center this Fall in their article, "ASSU-led Disabilities Week to culminate in launch of ‘Abilities Hub,’" published on October 24, 2017.

"Stanford does offer coursework focused on disability. HUMRTS 104: “Introduction to Disability Studies and Disability Rights,” offered this fall, explores what its course description calls “a relatively new interdisciplinary academic field that examines disability as a social, cultural and political phenomenon.” According to instructor Doron Dorfman, a law student, the class — the first of its kind at Stanford — has over 20 students enrolled."
