@Reid_Alexander You can add your own meeting background in the Teams client but not if you have joined a Teams meeting via the web.
In meeting select more actions (...) and then Apply background effects. Then select +Add new to add a new background image of your choice.

@Reid_Alexander I suspect that the Admin may have switched off the ability for users to add their own backgrounds (NoFilters). This is managed via PowerShell and cannot be seen in the Teams Admin portal.
See Microsoft Docs info
This is a per-user policy. This setting controls whether users can customize their video background in a meeting.
Currently, you can only use PowerShell to set this policy. You can edit an existing Teams meeting policy by using the Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy cmdlet. Or, create a new Teams meeting policy by using the New-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy cmdlet, and then assign the policy to users.
To specify whether users can customize their video background in a meeting, set the VideoFiltersMode parameter as follows:
|NoFilters||User can't customize their video background.|
|BlurOnly||User has the option to blur their video background.|
|BlurandDefaultBackgrounds||User has the option to blur their video background or choose from the default set of images to use as their background.|
|AllFilters||Use has the option to blur their video background, choose from the default set of images, or upload custom images to use as their background.|
