How Can I Get Bulk Email Under Control at My University?

Looking for a bulk email service that features multiple logins to a central "account," central list management, templates, scheduling...and anything else I'm missing. But mostly the first two things.

Yes, I get it: bulk email is the devil. But I work in higher education, and people around here love newsletters like a mefite loves snowflake details.
The email elves have gotten out of hand here, and we're trying to implement some kind of tool to get it under control. We need people or departments across campus to be able to log in with a unique user ID, select from a series of templates that we create, populate the email with content, select a list and time, and send.
We want to control this centrally so if some alum says "don't send me any more emails," they don't get any more emails from rogue factions. We'd also like to enforce some kind of communications calendar, so if there's a solution that includes a workflow where only certain accounts have the ability to say "okay, go ahead and send this," that'd be even better.
What's worked for you? Is homegrown the only way to do this?
