Is There a Workflow or Permissions System for Youtube?

Need a solution that will let multiple people post to a single YouTube account, but only after a review process.

I manage the YouTube account for my university. Over the years we have given the YouTube password (a separate account and password not affiliated with anything) to various folks around the university so they can put videos up without going through us. This is probably the worst solution for managing the account, but we got by on it...
...until today. Somebody put up a video with copyrighted music and we got a notice from YouTube. Not a big deal; we weren't in trouble, but YouTube was saying they'd put ads on the video. At the same time, someone else had put up one of our new commercials which aren't supposed to be unveiled until next week. I've taken both down. So that brings us to now.
I still want to give people the autonomy to post videos to the account without having to send it to helpdesk or webteam or any of our aliases, but I want to introduce some checks and balances so that we can give it a quick look to make sure it's not off-brand, terrible, breaks the guidelines, etc. Is there a solution for YouTube workflow? People work on various operating systems, so a web solution would work best.
