Well,

What platform are you developing? Java? .NET? etc....?

If it is going to be webbased.. you have to think about security risks like brute force, SQL injection, SSL etc... 
maybe you can give some more specifics first?

Met vriendelijke groet,

We are looking at implementing a web-based password reset system for our 
entire campus.  This would allow us numerous enhancements and security 
benefits without requiring a 24 hour help desk staff.  I know that there 
are disadvantages to such a system.  Our initial plan is to develop one 
in-house.  So doing, we don't want to reinvent the wheel, or follow others 
into known pitfalls.  So, what I am requesting is any advice, war stories, 
suggestions, pitfalls, etc you can muster.

Thanks,
Jason
