Moving Up in the World of Higher Ed Administration

The president of the college that I work for recently asked to see my resume and has set up a time for me to talk about 'my future career track' at the college. I am honored, shocked, and flustered. I have no idea how to navigate this situation.

I am an academic advisor at a college, fairly low on the totem pole. I've only been working there for about three years. At our departmental Christmas party, I had a casual conversation with the president of the college. I told him I was getting my masters in higher ed admin (will graduate in December) and shared with him some of my previous work experience with a well-known organization. He was impressed with my experience and credentials and asked me to email him my resume and set up a time to come talk with him in his office.
Is this like a job interview? I don't even know what job I'm interviewing for? How can I prep for this? What should I do? I'm totally freaking out. Totally totally totally. Also, thanks to a nosy co-worker, everyone in my office knows that I'm going to meet w/the president, but I sort of bullshitted (bullshat?) an excuse.
