I contracted full production with one of these companies, and it shows that it should produce a University every four months, but I never see a new one built. I don't see it sold on the purchases page nor do I see a new one when I look at the education page. The funny thing is though, it makes a profit.
What's going on?

The purchases page is dysfunctional. It does not, in fact, appear to log country purchases or sales (though presumably it wouldn't display for individual corps anyway--only country strategic stock).
Your university corp is likely selling its product as soon as it is produced. Corps with prices set too low often sell their product immediately, especially if they sell items in severe shortage. Government items are frequently in shortage.
Raise your sale prices by changing trade strategies gradually, until you start seeing "some left" every fourth month, and don't forget to follow quality!
(However if you are not a full member you can ONLY sell at some nebulous "best price")
EDIT: The above advice can apply to ANY corp. For contracted corps, the monthly contract is executed as soon as the contracted product is produced. The same process applies, but all contracts are executed at whatever market price plus quality modifier is.
You should find the amount of universities in your educational system increasing by one about every four months if you have contracted the corp's production to your nation.

Yeah, I'm seeing it now. Thanks for the advice.
