Not exactly what I was hoping for unfortunately. My user creation scripts are Powershell running in a Windows environment. I was hoping to fire off an email to Mailman to subscribe the new user to the appropriate campus announcement list. Maybe I'll get a bit creative and have the Powershell scripts create files to SCP over to the Mailman box and then use "add_members" via a cron job.

Have you checked into $LOCALBASE/mailman/bin/add_members? You could probably wrap a script around it easily enough.
Add members to a list from the command line.
add_members [options] listname
A file containing addresses of the members to be added, one
address per line. This list of people become non-digest
members. If file is `-', read addresses from stdin. Note that
-n/--non-digest-members-file are deprecated synonyms for this option.
Similar to above, but these people become digest members.
Set whether or not to send the list members a welcome message,
overriding whatever the list's `send_welcome_msg' setting is.
Set whether or not to send the list administrators a notification on
the success/failure of these subscriptions, overriding whatever the
list's `admin_notify_mchanges' setting is.
Print this help message and exit.
The name of the Mailman list you are adding members to. It must
You must supply at least one of -r and -d options. At most one of the files can be `-'.
