Change Unix "sudo" working directory? (Debian Unix)

Experts, I know when you use "sudo" it's binary and not of the regular sh variety in Unix...

But it always gets run from the directory that you execute it from as it's "working" directory.  Is there a way to force all "sudo" commands to use a different directory for this?

Case in point - I'm executing sudo commands from a website.  The "working directory" is wherever the sudo command is issued.  I'd like to redirect all of this to /root if this is at all possible.
