I know I'm not a URM, but can this be included in a Diversity statement?

Yea, talk about your Meditteranian culture. I am 1/4 Italian and 3/4 Mexican but we share the same values. We have a strong emphasis upon La Familia and so forth. Your experience as a Italian or Italian American will be different than a lot of White Anglo Saxon Protestants. Remember diversity is not only about ethnicity but other things also Single Mother, Foster child, and so forth.

I don't see why not, as long as it distinguishes you in some way.
