This study explores how academic, research and extracurricular engagement is linked to the development of critical thinking in undergraduates using a spe­cific statistical model. Empirical basis of research was provided by the results of the Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) survey conduc­ted in one of Russian national research universities in 2017 (N = 3,344). Binary logistic regression reveals a statistically significant relationship between the development of critical thinking and student engagement in learning, research and extracurricular activities, higher involvement corresponding to better cri­tical thinking skills. The findings may be useful for developing curricula, allo­cating student workload, and devising new initiatives for university students.
