Multiple campus SSO security requirements

We are considering multi-campus web-SSO system that allows an end-user to authenticate using their home campus LDAP 
account or another campus LDAP account they may hold   Has anyone implemented such a system and how have you dealt with 
the trust issues between campuses that this creates? For example, each campus may have their upfront ID-issuing or 
vetting process reviewed by all the other campuses and an agreement signed before they are allowed to participate, as 
in a federation.  Any thoughts on this issue would be welcome.
